In this paper the speed of microscopic droplets used as targets for laser-plasma soft x-ray generation is investigated. The speed is measured for a variety of liquids with different hydrodynamic properties and at different pressures. A theoretical model is then adapted to predict the speed of the jet, given the applied pressure and the physical properties of the liquid. Since certain liquids with low surface tension and cryogenic liquids are interesting for laser-plasma generation, obtaining a model for the speed of the liquid is important, as the speed cannot be easily measured for these liquids.
