From the waves on a pond to the deposit left by a drying drop to the ability of insects to walk on water, phenomena dominated by surface tension are everywhere. Professor Deegan will give a guided tour of some of the more interesting examples from everyday life and from current research.
All talks are free and refreshments will be served. Visitor parking for the seminars (Central Campus) is across the street from the Dennison Building in the U-M Church Street structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services.
