Damn, because of the space coffee thingie, I'm now into the cohesion (or dropability) of water and I've got work to do at work. 13.gif

Quote:It is easy to see that the drop seems to have a "skin" holding it into a sort of flattened sphere (although there is nothing flat about a water drop in outer space.). It turns out that this surface tension is the result of the tendency of water molecules to attract one another.
