7) where TS–L (0) is the surface tension with no voltage applied. The V2 dependence indicates that either a direct current (DC) voltage, of positive or negative polarity, or an alternating current (AC) voltage can be applied across the dielectric layer. 7). 5, an electric field, E, is created by a distribution of electrical charges at rest. This field exerts a force on any other charge that is present in the field. For a positive charge the electric force acts in the same direction as the electric field vector.

It will twist like a compass needle so that its north seeking pole points along the direction of the Earth’s magnetic field. To cause the particle to move requires a magnetic field gradient. 10) where the symbol ∇ is the grad vector operator used to specify the spatial gradient variation of B. 11) where (???? p − ???? m ) is the difference between the magnetic susceptibilities of the particle (???? p ) and the medium it has displaced (???? m ), and Vp is the volume of the particle. 11), H is known as the magnetic field intensity or magnetizing field.

In this case we have a nonwetting liquid relative to the surface, corresponding to a hydrophobic surface when considering aqueous liquids.  (a) A drop of liquid in air on a solid surface has three interfaces (liquid-solid, liquid-air, solid-air). (b) The contact angle ???? is defined as the angle formed between the tangent to the liquid surface and the xy-plane at the boundary between the three interfaces. 1). equivalent to a transition from a nonwetting to a wetting state. This effect is known as electrowetting on dielectrics (EWOD).
