The FTA32 goniometer provides video-based contact angle and surface tension measurement. Contact angles are measured by fitting a mathematical expression to the shape of a drop and then calculating the slope of the tangent to the drop at the liquid-solid-vapor (LSV) interface line. Computer software drop shape analysis gives contact angle without operator intervention or judgement.
