I would like to know if there has been any study of the fluid dynamics
(specifically sufrace tension) of smoke. I can create a pool of cigarette smoke
on the edge of a table which can be encouraged to "flow" down the side of the
tabletop until it reaches the lower edge where it breaks off and floats upward
as the laws of physics dictate.
