Title: Necking of a water drip

Description: Requested by a physics textbook author this "necking" phenomenon is associated with a drop detaching from a dripping spout. The drop gradually forms an ever thinning connection to the faucet and this eventually separates from both drop and faucet leaving a set of droplets behind. Question: is there a way to stop these trailing droplets from forming? Answers welcome! Send to author at The sequence was made in the Imaging and Photo Tech department at Rochester Institute of Technology.
