Description: Research Report
Summary: Experiments were made on the adhesive force between 2 ice spheres, 1.5-4.0 mm. in diam., suspended on thin cotton filaments. The normal adhesive force, which tends to decrease with decreasing temperature, was measured by the inclination of a filament as the spheres seperated. The ice spheres occasionally rotated before separation, and 2 or 3 successive rotations were noted with a 0.1 percent solution of NaCl. The phenomena may be explained by assuming the existence of a liquid film on the ice surface.
