A 20 cm long capillary tube is dipled in water.The water rises up to 8cm .if the entire arrangement is put in a freely falling elevator ,the lenght of the water column is
Its a theoretical sum
The Attempt at a Solution
Okay...since this is a freely falling elevator ,the reletive accelaration will be zero and hence i feel the fluid will maintain its orignal height of 8cm
But alas ,the book says its 20cm and have give the reason that since its "gravityless" ie :rel accelaration 0, it will occupy full capillary tube.
