October 17, 2017. “Clear” water drop collisions

Today, I explored undyed water against a blue background.  The results look like ice sculptures.

October 15, 2017: Water drop collisions with an alcohol bath

Today - exploring water drops into different bath solutions: water, alcohol, milk.  The major observation is that water drops colliding with an alcohol bath results in a larger diameter Worthington jet than when colliding with a water or milk solution.  So I suspect this is a property of non-polar bath solutions
