Surface Tension - Capillary Rise Method

Surface Tension - Capillary Rise Method

A simulated experiment on the determination of surface tension by the Capillary Rise Method. It uses capillary tubes of 0.2, 0.4, and 1.0 mm i.d. for 7 liquids at 15, 20, 25, and 30 degrees C. Two capillaries are shown for each experiment to allow the "twin capillary" technique.
