FIG. 1.

Young’s diagram for a three-phase contact line: the fluid-fluid interface (dashed line) intersects the solid plane (gray) at an angle ; the tangential components of the surface tensions is zero, i.e., , whereas the net vertical component, , is balanced by the resistance of the solid.

FIG. 3.

A solid sphere floating at zero gravity between two fluids ( and ). The interfacial plane meets the sphere at an angle and a net vertical force arises form the Young’s diagram, i.e., .
