The height (h) to which a liquid will rise in a capillary tube:

  1. increases with increase in surface tension of liquid
  2. decreases with increase in radius of the tube

   Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Answer: [C] Both 1 & 2

The height (h) to which a liquid will rise in a capillary tube is directly proportional to surface tension of liquid and inversely proportional to radius of the tube.
