Want to know effect of differnet material on capillary action

  1. Dec 9, 2012 #1
    Hey,

    I need to know the effect ( capillary rise) due to different materials on capillary action.

    Also, what is the reason behind it, not so complex, just in simple language.

    It will be more good if I'll get the practical and calculated values of height in capillary tube of different substances, such as water, mercury, glycerin, and 2 to 3 liquids more..

    Thnx in advance, please help soon..

    The link I posted has an equation by which you can deduce it from density, contact angle and surface tension. Each of those should have values published on the net for various liquids.
