An experiment was made to investigate the heat transfer to a liquid drop impinging on a hot surface. The transient temperature of the heater surface was measured by a thin-film thermometer. The surface temperature fell to a contact temperature immediately after contact with the drop. The contact temperature increased with increasing initial surface temperature T0 . In the case of the water drop, however, it was approximately constant for 200°C ≲ T0 ≲ 300°C; and it increased again for T0 ≳ 300°C. The surface temperature at the turning point, i.e., T0 ∼ 300°C, roughly coincided with the Leidenfrost point.
