An improved method of sessile drop for determining the surface tension of liquids
Annotation
An improved procedure is developed for the processing of images of meridional section of a liquid drop, obtained as a result of realization of the sessile drop method for determining the surface tension of liquid. The procedure provides for the scanning of digital image of droplet, for numerical solution of the Young–Laplace equation, and for the calculation of surface tension, wetting angle, and volume of the drop.
