Problem 3.36 [Difficulty: 3] Given: Water column standin in glass tube Δ h5 0 m m = D 2.5 mm = σ 72.8 10 3 × N m = (From Table A.4, App. A) Find: (a) Column height if surface tension were zero. (b) Column height in 1 mm diameter tube Solution: We will apply the hydrostatics equations to this system. Governing Equations: dp dh ρ g = (Hydrostatic Pressure - h is positive downwards) Δ h p Δ h c Δ h Δ h c π D δ θ Mg = ρ gV Σ F z 0 = (Static Equilibrium) Assumptions: (1) Static, incompressible liquid (2) Neglect volume under meniscus (3) Applied pressure remains constant (4) Column height is sum of capillary rise and pressure difference Assumption #4 can be written as: Δ h Δ h c Δ h p + = Choose a free-body diagram of the capillary rise portion of the column for analysis: Σ F z π D σ cos θ () π 4 D 2
