Electrocoalescence Criterion for Two Close Anchored Water Drops and Estimate for Pairs of Drops in a Field


An investigation is presented of the deformation and coalescence of two closely spaced drops of conducting liquid suspended in an insulating fluid under the action of an electric field. After a recap of previous work on two identical drops, the equation governing the droplets deformation is derived in the asymptotic case of very close drops subjected to a… (More)
