This is an extremely simple case. A drop of liquid sits on a surface, and
is deformed by gravity and its surface energy. This problem is described
as the
*Surface Evolver* example two. You can
create a customized version of the mound.fe file with a different gravity
constant and/or contact angle below by filling out the form and clicking on **Submit**.

Adjustable parameters are the contact angle and the gravity. With negative gravity, the "mound" will be a drop hanging from the ceiling. The drop itself starts out as a 1x1x1 cube, so the gravity constant should be adjusted for that.

Interior angle between plane and surface in degrees:

Gravity constant:
