When water flows over glass which has been treated with the vapor of dimethyldichlorosilane and thus made water repellent, slipping on the boundary between the solid surface and the water takes place. This is is shown in capillary tubes of various diameters. The amount of slipping is small, but measurable. It disappears or becomes extremely small in case of turbulent flow.
