Resource type: Video/animation
Description: This resource is a video guide, which shows how to determine contact angles of a surface with the help of CAM 200 software. Determination of contact angles provides better understanding of interactions between solids and liquids, materials wettability, adhesion, speading and absorption. The video shows examples of hydrophobic and hydrophyllic surfaces, with different amounts of surface free energy and wettability.
Keywords: absorption • adhesion • speading • wettability • contact angle • hydrophobic • hydrophyllic • surface free energy • solid • liquid • surface modification • Young's equation • video
