Wetness of object after submerging in fluid
I was wondering if there are any articles or equations calculating the amount of residual fluid kept on the surface of a submerged object. In other words, is there an expression for wetness knowing properties of the fluid (viscosity, friction coeff), and object?
I do not necessarily need to know the amount of fluid left, but perhaps a fluid concentration on the surface as a function of all variables necessary.
I guess it would help to know if wetness is analogous to porosity.
Any help or names that will keep me in track would be greatly appreciated.

I'm sure the the subject of "wetting" is very complex and has it's own branch of science. I imagine the paint and detergent industries spend a lot on research.

So naive of me to not even check wetting in wikipedia... I was "sure" wetting was not the right terminology...
But thank you nonetheless..
