    Need help- calculating clearing of bubbles from a microfluidic channel

    Hi All, I need some help to figure out how to best go about setting-up and analyzing a micro-fluidics design problem I ran across in my research. It's not the typical single-surface contact angle adhesion kind of analysis. Basically, I have a wide micro-fluidic channel that's formed by a...

    I Strain of of a bubble's surface interface during vibrations

    Imagine a bubble vibrating in air. Because it vibrates, it's interfacial area increases, thus new molecules are added and removed from the surface as it vibrates. Consider a molecule is initially at position X_0 at the interface, and over a certain amount of time molecules squeeze and disappear...

    I Why do bubbles of air in water move up?

    What I am confused about is why do bubbles of air in water move up. I understand why solids and liquids would move up in water if they are less dense. I get the idea that the deeper you go in water the more pressure there is because of the more water weighing down on the water and so there would...

    B The acceleration of a bubble in water

    Hi, I have a question about a rising bubble. I read that the initial acceleration of a bubble (with negligible mass) in water is 2g, where g is the gravitational acceleration. I understand that if a bubble rise then the water move around it, but I can't derive this equation. Could someone help...

    Making bubbles and trying to use Trompe

    Hi, I am trying to create a device that would "simply" make a bubble under the water. What I am aiming for is production of small bubble but continuously and under the water. When I say continuously, it doeant have to be for extended periods of time, could be just for ~2 hours but the longer...

    Minimum radius of bubbles in a soda bottle (surface tension)

    Homework Statement [/B] The question is from chapter 9 of "Exercises in Introductory Physics" by Leighton and Vogt. The answer given in the book is ##R = 4.9 \times 10^{-5} \rm{cm}##. Homework Equations $$\sigma = \frac{\Delta P \cdot R}{4}$$ Where, ##\sigma## is the surface tension...

    Particle Reynolds number

    Hello, The particle Reynolds number makes me confused and I hope someone can help me on this please! Normally (as I read in every books and papers) that when a bubble or drop rises in a fluid, the bubble/drop Reynolds number is calculated by: Re = ρUD/μ where U is particle velocity, D can...

    Ideal gas expansion

    Homework Statement A bubble comes from the bottom of the tank of water to the surface and triples in its volume. If the temperature of the tank of water doesnt deppend on the depth what is the depth of the tank that the bubble was at? Homework Equations ##PV=nRT## The Attempt at a Solution...

    Ideal gas law: can you use it to find P during exsolution?

    If you shake up a bottle of soda and it gets slightly larger because the disturbed gas in solution is trying to expand but cannot, could you use the difference in (THE SMALL AMOUNT THE BOTTLE ACTUALLY SWELLED) and the (POTENTIAL AMOUNT THE GAS WOULD SWELL IF NOT CONTAINED) to determine the...

    Expansion of bubble

    Homework Statement (1)The gas inside a spherical bubble expands slowly so that its radius is increases from R to 2R. Atmospheric pressure is ##P_0## and surface tension is S. The work done by the gas is ___________ Homework Equations work done against surface tension ##W_t = S.\Delta A## where...
