Abstract:

In order to determine some of the difficulties to be encountered by electrochemical wet-cell batteries in free fall, a survey was made of the general behavior of liquids in a zero-gravity state. The basic behavior of liquids depends in part upon their wetting characteristics with respect to their containers. The general behavior of wetting and non-wetting liquids in free fall is discussed. The specific application of these behaviors is demonstrated by the discussion of a specific problem to be encountered in wet-cell batteries in free fall. A solution to the problem is presented that utilizes the behavior of liquids in free fall as an integral part of the answer. Author
