How is B more correct than D? Both show that forces between glass and fluid are stronger than those between fluid molecules. Thank you for any insight!
Capillary action is the process by which liquids move through narrow spaces or tubes, such as the tiny tubes in a plant's stem.
B and D refer to the shape of the tube or container in which the capillary action is taking place. B-shaped tubes have a wider opening, while D-shaped tubes have a narrower opening.
D-shaped tubes typically result in stronger capillary action because the narrower opening creates a greater surface tension, allowing the liquid to rise higher.
No, capillary action can only occur in liquids because it relies on the cohesive and adhesive properties of liquids to move through narrow spaces.
Capillary action is used in many everyday items, such as sponges, paper towels, and plants. It is also used in technologies such as inkjet printers and lab-on-a-chip devices.
