# Do the radius of capillary affect the value of surface tension ?

While going through the derivation to find the surface tension of liquid i came with the formula which says that the surface tension is directly proportional to radius of the capillary so does that imply if we use a capillary with a greater radius so the same will give the different value of surface tension ?

Surface tension is a property of the liquid.
