This problem and Prob. 2.1 can also be solved using Mohr’s circle.
A vertical clean glass piezometer tube has an inside diameter of 1 mm. When apressure is applied, water at 20
C rises into the tube to a height of 25 cm. After correctingfor surface tension, estimate the applied pressure in Pa.
For water, let
0.073 N/m, contact angle
. Thecapillary rise in the tube, from Example 1.9 of the text, is

Then the rise due to applied pressure is less by that amount:
