Title

The Relation Between Dynamics of Wetting and Nonwetting Liquids

Abstract

The relation between the dynamics of wetting and nonwetting liquids parameterized by non-zero contact angle was studied. Mathematics of singular solutions, blow-off experiments and lubrication theory approximation were used for the analysis. Voinov-Hoffman-Tanner rule was derived for a spreading drop of a wetting liquid.
