**Figure 1.**Graph: Interaction potential of a spherical system coupled to its environment. The potential decays as ${(r+\delta )}^{-\alpha}$. The effective interaction region extends over a distance $\delta $ which fulfills condition (1). Diagram: The system has energy E, volume V, and N particles. The system’s pressure $\widehat{p}$ and chemical potential $\widehat{\mu}$ differ from the environment by an amount ${p}_{\delta}=\widehat{p}-p$, and ${\mu}_{\delta}=\widehat{\mu}-\mu $, where ${p}_{\delta}$ and ${\mu}_{\delta}$ are, respectively, the pressure and chemical potential at the effective interaction region. The interaction region is a phase with thickness $\delta $, volume ${\mathcal{V}}_{\delta}$, energy ${\mathcal{E}}_{\delta}$, and ${\mathcal{N}}_{\delta}$ particles.

**Figure 2.**Capillary tube with three phases and three interfacial regions. The difference between ${p}_{\delta}^{\mathrm{VS}}$ and ${p}_{\delta}^{\mathrm{LS}}$ causes the wetting angle $\theta $ to deviate from 90°. This causes in turn an interfacial pressure ${p}_{\delta}^{\mathrm{LV}}={p}_{\delta}^{\mathrm{VS}}-{p}_{\delta}^{\mathrm{LS}}$ between the liquid and the vapor phases.
