Race between microswimmers

Race between microswimmers

July 2019

Race between microswimmers consisting of a collinear assembly of three spheres: (Top) Swimmers with identical size ratios but different stroke sizes. (Bottom) Swimmers with identical stroke sizes but different size ratios. In each case, all the swimmers work with the same amount of power, so the more efficient one wins the race.
