comment Calculating Reynolds number for a viscous droplet
This was for a class project a couple years ago. We were trying to analyze the formation of the single, small droplet, specifically the dependence on viscosity. It's kind of a moot point for me personally now - I'm sure there are well established fluids theories at work here, and my research is in another area entirely.

comment Calculating Reynolds number for a viscous droplet
I don't think surface tension is constant since I'm changing the density of the fluid as well, in fact over the past couple days I've realized that it might play a much bigger role than I previous thought.

Is there a reasonable way to calculate surface tension here (either in theory or empirically)? Something with contact angles maybe?

comment How should a theoretical physicist study maths?
Abstract algebra will be useful as well.
