The objective of this Major Qualifying Project was to determine the contact angle of a droplet on a substrate at the so-called three-phase contact line. This was done by writing a program in Matlab that examined pictures in order to determine contact angle. The program accomplished its goals by approximating substrates as lines, and droplet as partial circles. This program will make it easier for future physicists to quickly and accurately do contact angle analysis.
