Rise and fall of capillary action

  1. Dec 12, 2012 #1
    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..
