This is an applied physics problem. A droplet of water sits on a horizontal surface. A large horizontal surface descends on the droplet and squashes it. The surface moves upwards; droplet is unsquashed. Further movement causes the drop to stretch towards the moving surface. At some point, the moving surface tears off a small hunk of water and makes it own droplet. The surface energy of the moving surface is 23 dynes/in. Is this phenomnon typical? How can I fix this....meaning no water remaining of the moving surface.
