Water drops: Gotas de lluvia

Wendy . Blog Shakespeare slept here! Published 23 February 2010

It's raining. The raindrops fall into the pond or lake, puddle or pool. And in the same place drops of water pop up. Are these the same drops that fall?

Where do the droplets come from?

For non PhD's: There's a thin layer of air separating the drop from the water below. It's like an elastic sheet. The connection is pinched off and a smaller droplet is formed, again and again until the tiny droplet can be absorbed.

Once I was swimming and the rain was falling. The sunlight was coming in horizontally and the water drops were popping up all around me. It was quite an amazing sight! Wendy

Very interesting video, you can see how the physics works and also enjoy the beautiful. I also recommend you, art with glass drops, that simulate raindrops
