Question

Some rocks or bricks contain small air pockets in
them and have a spongy structure. Assuming the air spaces
form columns of an average diameter of 0.006 mm, determine
how high water can rise in such a material. Take the
surface tension of the air–water interface in that material to
be 0.085 N/m.
