Unformatted text preview: P . This force must still balance the weight of the column of fluid, so that P cos = g hA = h = P gA cos where is the wetting angle and A is the cross-sectional area of the capillary tube. Now, for a rectangular tube s wide and 4 s thick, A = 4 s 2 and P = 10 s . Hence, h = 10 s g (4 s 2 ) cos = 5 2 gs cos...
