Terminal Velocity of Canola Oil, Hexane, and Gasoline Drops Rising in Water due to Buoyancy

Abstract

Drops, globules of a liquid in another liquid, are extremely important in many natural processes and industrial applications. The purpose of this study was to devise a method to measure the terminal velocity of drops rising in water due to buoyancy, and to compare observed values with the theoretical. Two questions were explored: (1) Do these drops continue… (More)
