Dynamic Behavior of a Drop on a Vertically Oscillating Surface
In the present paper the dynamic behavior of a drop of water subject to a vertical oscillating force is studied experimentally. A hydrophobic surface was used to maintain the form of the drop. The deformation of the drop as a response to several frequencies was analyzed by visualizing the oscillating patterns and measuring the maximum height of the drop as a function of time. The dynamic behavior has been classified in three phases: harmonic, geometric and chaotic.
