Does the size of a droplets depends on the size of the opening of the burette or pipette, would increasing the rate by which the droplets are falling would change the size of the droplets?

Or does it depends solely on the surface tension of the liquid itself, in which case the size of the droplets of the same type of a liquid would consistently be the same?

  • $\begingroup$ @Gert I am not quite sure but I believe that producing a droplet with different size using the stated technique is entirely different from a free falling droplets. Where in the latter case the droplet is dropped after its weight exceeds the surface tension of the droplet surface. $\endgroup$ – A Onsi Mar 12 at 18:37
  • $\begingroup$ In theory it is the state of maximum droplet size. $\endgroup$ – A Onsi Mar 13 at 5:56
