This paper proposed a theoretical model involving in conditions of bubble departure point and lift-off point, the principle and estimating method of individual forces have been proposed as well. The forces acted on growing bubble are, namely, surface tension force Fs , growth force of bubbles Fdu , shear lift force FsL , drag force of flow Fqs , hydrodynamic pressure force Fh , contact pressure force Fcp , buoyancy force Fb and bubble acceleration inertia force d(mvc )/dt as well. Horizontal and vertical momentum equations are presented according to forces balance of bubble, meanwhile, the estimating method of lean angle of bubble before departure also has been discussed.
