Question 3

Calculate the capillary effects (in mm) in a glass tube of 4 mm diameter, when immersed in mercury. The temperature of the liquid is 20 °C and the values of surface tension of water and mercury at 20 °C in contact with air are 0.0735 N/m and 0.48 N/m respectively. The contact angle for mercury is 130°.
