Experimental results analyses of macroscopic contact angle change from the drop growth rate of distilled water on stainless steel substrates is presented. The value of contact angle is found to depend on the drop growth rate (m): contact angle decreases at m up to 0.02ml/s and increases at m more than 0.02ml/s. At the final stage of spreading the contact line pinning occurs, depending on the drop growth rate and surface roughness.
