Wetting from Mixtures of Flexible Chains
The behavior of liquids on surfaces is a matter of everyday experience. The physics of this behavior is determined by the strength and nature of the surface interactions. These act only over microscopic distances, but determine the formation of common macroscopic features such as drops or thin films on a surface.
