    Tensions in Iran In the late 1970’s, tensions in Iran mounted, ending finally in a revolution. The two major parties involved were that of the Shah, or king, of Iran, who wanted a more westernized country, and the fundamentalist party led by a very religious Ayatollah Khomeini. This group did not appreciate the Shah’s liberal ideas.

    Surface Tension My problem was to find out how to test or measure surface tension. I think the reason of some of the force in surface tension is cohesion and gravity. Surface Tension is the condition existing at the free surface of a liquid, resembling the properties of an elastic skin under tension.

    Use of Symbols, Tensions, and Irony in The Glass Menagerie The Glass Menagerie, by Tennessee Williams, is a perfect example of how Williams incorporates symbols, tensions, and irony to help express the central theme of the play.

The increasing threat posed to religion by science does not worry Tension here, as he believes that our increasing knowledge of the universe can be reconciled with faith, saying: “Let knowledge grow from more to more, But more of reverence in us dwell; That mind and soul, according well, May make one music as before” (1
