Hi @Kremella

Contact angle at a meniscus refers to the angle made by the outline of the meniscus. This angle is always measured through the liquid surface. It quantifies the wettability of the liquid. If the contact angle is < 90 degrees, the fluid tends to wet the surface (in case of water, this is called hydrophilic surface). The meniscus is more curved if the contact angle is > 90 degrees (again, for water, this is gives rise to hydrophobic surfaces).

I hope this answers your question.

Thank you.
