Mutual Attractions of Partially Immersed Parallel Plates

Robert Finn and Devin Lu


We complete a study initiated in an earlier paper, on the horizontal attracting and repelling forces acting on two parallel semi-infinite plates, partly immersed in an infinite liquid bath and subject to capillary forces in a uniform gravity field. We find a considerable range of behavior patterns, depending on the contact angles on the plate sides and on the plate separation, in ways that we did not anticipate.
