taped to c., typed on paper: THE FORMATION OF A DROP OF LIQUID photographed by stroboscopic light at \ 60 flashes/sec. The
camera was moved so that the pictures are displaced \ in space as well as in time. Of special interest is the string of liquid which joins
the drop to the parent liquid. Note especially the \ formation of the small drops by the break-up action of the thread of \ liquid. The
ocillations of the large drop are graphically displayed in \ the sequence photography. (HAROLD EDGERTON and PETER MUI, MIT, Cambridge, MA)
