In fluid dynamics the Eötvös number (Eo) is a dimensionless number named after Hungarian physicist Loránd Eötvös (1848-1919).
Additional recommended knowledge
Together with Morton number it can be used to characterize the shape of a fluid sphere (air bubble, water drop...). Eötvös number may be regarded as proportional to buoyancy forces divided by surface tension forces.
