Him I am trying to replicate this water droplets all around the tap, so maybe a
series of droplets every 12 or 24 degrees around z axis. How should I do. that?
I know it is a beginner trick, but I am trying different #while sentences and it
doesn't seem to work out. Could somebody help me? Here is the code I am using to
achieve the droplets look like a trajectory.

Thanks in advance for any help,

// FUENTE SUPERIOR

#declare posX = 0.02;
#declare posY = 0.82;
#declare dy = 0.055;
#declare posZ=0;
#declare posZ= <0,0,posZ+12>;

#while (posX < 0.3)
sphere {
<posX,posY,0>, 0.01
material { agua }  }
#declare dy = dy - 0.01;
#declare posX = posX + 0.02;
#declare posY = (posY + dy);
#end

I think if you look at code used to model the physics of a falling object, or
better yet, a bouncing ball - you will get the deceleration on the upward
"bounce" and the acceleration on the subsequent fall.

Attached, find a scene I wrote to do the bouncing ball, hope it helps - ask if
you have any questions.

Thank you so much m@b, that was exactly what I was looking for. What if I wanted
to continue drawing my droplets in the lower level of the fountain? Where should
I declare the distance from the Y axis so that the droplets appear as a
continuation of the upper level?

Thank you in advance for any help

You could just add a second sphere and translate it before rotation:

#declare Rotation=0;
#declare Rotation_angle=12;

#while (Rotation < 360)
#declare posX = 0.02;
#declare posY = 0.82;
#declare dy = 0.055;
#while (posX < 0.3)
sphere {<posX,posY,0>, 0.01 pigment{rgb<0,1,0>}
rotate<0,Rotation,0>}
sphere {<posX,posY,0>, 0.01 pigment{rgb<0,0,1>}
translate<0.2,-0.3,0> rotate<0,Rotation,0> }
#declare dy = dy - 0.01;
#declare posX = posX + 0.02;
#declare posY = (posY + dy);
#end
#declare Rotation = (Rotation + Rotation_angle);
#end
