**Hint**For bubble to form beyond ring at a radius $b$ greater than $R$, then excess pressure must exist within the bubble. Because there is no acceleration of the molecule, then the force of the air must be equal to the force due to excess pressure within the bubble. On equating the formulas we get the solution.

**Formula used**In the solution we will be using the following formulas,

$\Rightarrow P = \dfrac{{4T}}{R}$ where $P$ is the excess pressure within the bubble, $T$ is the surface tension, and $R$ is the radius of the bubble.

Force exerted by air molecules ${F_a} = \rho A{v^2}$ where $\rho $ is the density of air, $A$ is the area on which the force is exerted on, and $v$ is the speed of the air.

**Complete step by step answer**

To solve the above equation, we note the bubble must contain an excess pressure within it to expand outwards. The excess pressure in a bubble is given by

$\Rightarrow P = \dfrac{{4T}}{R}$ where, $T$ is the surface tension and $R$ is the radius of the bubble.

This pressure pushes outward from the inside of the bubble.

According to the question, air collides with the bubble. These air molecules must exert a force on the bubble.

The force exerted by the molecules is given by

$\Rightarrow {F_a} = \rho A{v^2}$where$\rho $ is the density of air, $A$ is the area the force exerted on, and $v$ is the speed of the air.

Now, since there’s no acceleration of the bubble, the force exerted due to the excess pressure inside the bubble is equal to the force exerted by the air molecules hence on equating we get,

$\Rightarrow {F_a} = PA \Rightarrow \rho A{v^2} = \dfrac{{4AT}}{R}$ (Force due to excess pressure is $PA$. )

Making $R$ subject of the formula and cancelling the like terms, we have

$\Rightarrow R = \dfrac{{4T}}{{\rho {v^2}}}$

**Hence, the correct option is (C).**

**Note**

Alternatively, we can eliminate option B and D using a unit check. The unit of surface tension is N/m. Hence on substituting the units of the variables in the answers given for option B and D we have

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{N}{m} \div \left( {\dfrac{{kg}}{{{m^3}}} \times m{s^{ - 1}}} \right)$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{{kgm{s^{ - 2}}}}{m} \times \left( {\dfrac{{{m^2}}}{{kg{s^{ - 1}}}}} \right) = {m^2}{s^{ - 1}}$ This is not the unit of distance.

Also from knowledge that

$\Rightarrow P = \dfrac{{4T}}{R}$ since force exerted by air is a dimensionless constant, we can safely say that option C is the solution.
