Comments on radially symmetric liquid bridges with inflected profiles

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • For a liquid bridge between parallel planes which makes equal contact angles with those planes, it is already known that a pitchfork bifurcation occurs when there is an inflection in the profile curve. A geometrical argument is outlined to give an alternate and more elementary proof of this fact. In contrast to the behavior of liquid bridges between parallel planes, it is shown that a liquid bridge between spheres exists which is stable and has two inflections. Along the way, a result relating stability and \(dH/dV\) for a family of capillary surfaces is established.
