In this paper we report the experimental observation of spreading and recoil of surfactant-containing water drops on various alcohol films supported on glass slides. The time evolution of spreading and recoil behavior was recorded by placing a web camera above the drop. We observed that the drop spread the fastest on CH3OH, followed by C2H5OH, and the… CONTINUE READING
