A liquid spreading model is developed in which surface and gravitational driving energies are balanced against the energy lost through bulk viscous dissipation. Behavior is described in terms only of independently measurable quantities, with no adjustable parameters. Additionally, the model can be used to predict liquid viscosity as a function of spreading behavior. Two different liquid velocity fields are considered, one appropriate for bulk droplet spreading, and the other for thin liquid.
