Assume that I have capillary of radius 0.08 cm.

I want to test this capillary for capillary rise action.

Formula will be


what will be the rise for water.. ( please tell me the calculated value)

And, what will be the fall in mercury. ( How to show it negative as its height falls in capillary.

I also want the calculated value of height of water rise in radius of 0.08 cm or of any radius,
with same radius I need the capillary rise in mercury, glycerin, and two to three other liquids..

Atleast, provide me the 5 liquids with their imp. values for calculation such as θ, ρ, and surface tension..

Thnx in advance, and please, be fast, cause I need it in under 12 hours..

We have a forum for homework. Please do not post your homework in the science forums and expect people to give you answers, especially without doing any work yourself.
