Table 1 Range of drops considered in our study.

The values reported for γ/γF = 0.990 are from experimental observations with h = 1.6 mm. The case with γ/γF = 0.970 corresponds to our simulations in which the impact phase φ was adjusted to match v0, and so drop inertia, for the smallest drop. This adjustment allowed us to assess the role of memory on the range of interaction, independent of drop inertia (see Fig. 1E).
