The dynamics wetting/dewetting of a metal surface by distilled water drop was studied experimentally. The advancing and receding dynamic contact angles were obtained as a function of a contact line speed. The hydrodynamic and molecular-kinetic models have been applied to the experimental data to interpret the obtained results. The independent variables of the molecular-kinetic and hydrodynamic models, and the determination coefficient were determined by fitting procedure. The receding contact angles are found to be fitted better to the wetting models in comparison with the advancing dynamic contact angles.
