There is another means which should show the direction and relative value of the stresses in viscoelastic fluids that is not mentioned as_such in the literature , and that is the shape of the suspended drops of low viscosity fluids in shear fields .

The relative forces can be calculated from the various radii_of_curvature if we assume : ( A ) The surface_tension is uniform on the surface of the drop .

( D ) Since the shape of the drop conforms_to the force field , it does not appreciably affect the distribution of forces in the fluid .

Just as the pressure exerted by surface_tension in a spherical drop is * * f and the pressure exerted by surface_tension on a cylindrical shape is * * f , the pressure exerted by any curved surface is * * f , where �g is the interfacial_tension and * * f and * * f are the two radii_of_curvature .

There are no data published in the literature on the shape of low viscosity drops to confirm the above formulas .
