Abstract: This paper deals with the effects of the surface tension on the equilibrium of fluids. It shows that, when a fluid with an incompressible fluid inclusion is put in a fluid environment kept at constant pressure, equilibrium configurations may arise whose character of stability is affected by the sign of the perturbations of the environmental pressure. Such configurations we refer to as metastable.
