We consider condensation in a capillary groove of width L and depth D, formed by walls that are completely wet (contact angle θ=0), which is in a contact with a gas reservoir of the chemical potential μ. On a mesoscopic level, the condensation process can be described in terms of the midpoint height ℓ of a meniscus formed at the liquid-gas interface. For… CONTINUE READING
