Which choice is not true of a liquid in a glass capillary with a convex meniscus?
Which choice is not true of a liquid in a glass capillary with a convex meniscus?
The liquid has strong cohesive forces.
The liquid level will be lower inside the capillary when a capillary is inserted into a bowl of the liquid.
The liquid will have a convex meniscus as it moves in the capillary.
The behavior of the liquid is driven by strong interactions with the capillary glass.

  • It's false that the liquid has strong cohesive forces (since cohesive forces mean the liquid is essentially attracted to itself, and that would result in a concave meniscus).
