In a previous study, it has been shown that AC electric field can be used to assemble particles on freely suspended single floating droplet on immiscible liquids. The particles can be arranged on the pole or equator of the droplet. In this study, we have shown by experiments that, at any initial location of the particles and at very low frequency, flow deceases with increase in frequency. This phenomenon occurs due to difference in dielectric properties as well as conductivity of particles and liquid medium when low frequency is applied. Under high frequency, particles drag towards the pole or equator due to Clausius Mossotti factor of particles and droplet.
