Wettability is defined as the tendency of one fluid to spread on or adhere to a solid surface in the presence of other immiscible fluids. The concept of wettability is illustrated in Figure 4-1.Small drops of three liquids—mercury, oil, and water—are placed on a clean glass plate. The three droplets are then observed from one side as illustrated in Figure 4-1.
