The interaction energies of colloids according to the Conventional Classic DLVO consists of the non-retarded Attractive van der Waals interaction and Repulsive electrostatic interaction energies. The equations are for a Sphere-Plate configuration and constant surface potential. This DLVO is called Conventional because the equations are obtained within the framework of the Derjaguin approximation assuming an equivalent sphere. The equations are broadly used in colloid science.
