Adhesion forces generated at a contact point between spherical and plate specimens of potassium halides, commercial soda-lime glass and Pyrex glass were estimated by using an electrobalance, and adsorption isotherms of water vapor and methyl alcohol on these samples were also measured. The thickness of a liquid bridge and the pressure at which a capillary condensation occurs for the first time have been investigated using porous glasses each of which has a monodispersed pore radius. The following conclusions have been deduced from the comprehensive comparison of the obtained results. The adhesion forces under low and high water vapor pressures are suggested to be ascribed to hydrogen bond and liquid bridge, respectively. A marked increase of adhesion force observed in the pressure range 0.6 < P/P0 < 0.85 is due to a transformation from hydrogen bond to liquid bridge and due to a change in the physical property of condensed liquid. The thickness of the liquid bridge at P/P0 = 0.6 is presumed to be 29-37Å
