This is awesome.
This is awesome.
Video exploring the motion of water droplets. Provides a clear view of the effect of surface tension with ultra high speed cameras.
This post explains how the transition of water droplet before it's totally the part of the large amount of water... Nice to know the reason, I never thought it's because of the surface tension, where some insects stands on it and it holds the water to intact together... Great post!
That's what technology can do! The water is not stable when the pictures is taken. When it's finally edited it was all flat.
This is awesome, but much better in HD. I bet you could find it somewhere at that definition.
Okay, that's interesting, however, to claim this is what happens when it rains is a bit of a stretch.
A rain drop has much more velocity than a drop of water that only falls 1 inch. Large raindrops can reach speeds of up to 20mph.
To make the claim 'this is what a rain drop does' from this study is unscientific and inconclusive.
It's more likely that a high velocity drop of water will break the air layer surface tension in one motion and go 'ker-plunk' into the water as a whole drop.
nature is beatiful and cool :D

Great video, absolutely mind blowing.
That freaking rules.
I want to be that droplet.
WOW, that is so cool.
Behaviour of water droplets hitting surface of water in super slow motion at 2000 frames/sec. A combination of an insulating layer of air and surface tension causes the droplets to bounce.
out of all the slow motion water drops I've watched, I have never seen this effect.
I did not realize it happened more than once I assumed that the whole droplet was absorbed after the first leap! Amazing.
Video of water droplets falling into water. crazy!
