how to model a movable droplet sourse in electirc field
 
Hi! I wanna build a droplet sourse model in which the droplet would be moved by electric field forces. So the droplet must be charged initially, but how can i do this? :)
thank you!

The current droplet source model does not allow the electric charge to be defined. If the droplets are small compared to the mesh size, you could use a particle source instead. They can carry a charge, albeit the same for all particles. Would this work?
