 FLUID MECHANICS - CASE STUDY Introduction Capillary Action Peter has joined the Sandia National Laboratory as an undergraduate research assistant through a summer intership program. To let his interns better understand the property of surface tension, the laboratory director decides to demonstrate surface tension effects through capillary action. However, before starting, he asks each intern what the height will be for two different radii. Questions Determine the height of the water column (h) for two different tube radii: R = 1 mm and 10 mm. Approach Assume the contact angle of water with clean glass is zero. Assume the water temperature is 30oC.
