Droplet motion in an inhomogeneous-in-temperature viscous medium

  • 14 Accesses


Theory of heat carrying by spherical fluid particles in viscous liquids is developed. It is found that the velocity of the particles is directly proportional to the derivative of surface tension with respect to temperature.
