The neglect of inertia terms and assumption of Poiseuille's flow approximations in describing the motion of a liquid with a free surface in narrow passages are inappropriate for certain motions. This is demonstrated with experiments in which the rates of spontaneous rise of a meniscus in an empty capillary tube, when one end is suddenly contacted with a pool of water, were determined with the aid of a high-speed camera. Glass capillary tubes 266 to 1191/zm in diameter were used in the vertical… CONTINUE READING
