1.The surface tension of the soap solution is 30 x 10^{-3}N/m .How much work is done to increase the radius of the soap bubble from 1.5 cm to 3 cm . Ans- 5.091 x 10^{-4 }j.

solution-

2. A square glass plate of length 10cm and thickness 0.4cm, weighs 40 g in air . It is held vertically such that its lower edge rests on water surface. What is the apparent weight of glass plate now? (S.T. of water is 0.073 N/m). Ans-0.407N.

3. The radii of two air bubbles are in the ratio 4:5 .Find the ratio of excess pressure inside them . Also compare the works done in Blowing these bubbles. Ans-5/4 ; 16/25 .

4. A circular plate of radius 4cm and weight W is made to rest on the surface of water if a minimum pull of W+F is required to clear the plate off the water surface then find F , given surface tension of water is 0.072N/M. Ans-0.018N .

5. Water rises up in a glass capillary upto a height of 10cm , while mercury falls down by 3.5 cm in the same tube. If the angle of contact for water – glass and mercury-glass are is taken as 0^{0} and 135^{0} respectively . compare the surface tension of water and mercury. [ density of water and mercury are 10^{3} and 13.6×10^{3}kg/m^{3}.].

6. A canister has a small hole at its bottom .What penetrates into the canister when its base is at a depth of 40cm from the surface of water. If surface tension of water is 73.5 dyne/cm, find the radius of the hole . Ans- 0.0375mm.
