Water Rises in a Vertical Capillary Tube up to a Length of 10 Cm. If the Tube is Inclined at 45°, the Length of Water Risen in the Tube Will Be - Physics

MCQ

Water rises in a vertical capillary tube up to a length of 10 cm. If the tube is inclined at 45°, the length of water risen in the tube will be

Options

  • 10 cm

  • \[10\sqrt{2}\] cm 

  • \[10/\sqrt{2}\] cm 

  •  none of these

Solution

\[\text{ Given }: \]

\[\text{ l = 10 cm }\]

\[\alpha = {45}^0 \]

\[\text{ Rise in water level after the tube is tilted = h}\]

\[ \Rightarrow \text{ l = h} \cos {45}^0 \]

\[ \Rightarrow h = \frac{l}{\cos {45}^0} = \frac{10}{\left( \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} \right)} = 10\sqrt{2}\text{ cm }\]

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
