Abstract:

The results of the investigations of spray particle impact are reported. A method was devised to measure the velocity an calculate the diameter of the spray particle in light. The crater produced at impact was measured to obtain the diameter and several attempts to measure penetration and volume are described. A scaling law relating macro size craters to micro craters produced at the same velocity is presented.
