4 Effect of Surface Tension and Capillarity Capillarity is a phenomenon based on the surface-tension effect. The phenomenon is illustrated by putting a partially submerging thin tube (capillary) in water, perpendicularly to the surface. If the capillary is made out of a hydrophilic material like glass, the level of water in the capillary will be higher than the water level in the surrounding container. 9 did not take into account the surface-tension effect that to some extent violates Archimedes’ law of buoyancy (Falkovich et al.

With the gap junction scenario, new methods have to be developed for visualizing this structure, since the current method of choice used in investigating orthopedic objects, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), may not be adequate for the task. 5 Future Verification or the Gap Junction Scenario 19 different soft tissues like ligaments, tendons, and muscles in addition to detecting bone tissues like X-rays. The techniques of MRI are based on capturing the spatial distribution of protons passing through live tissues in the external magnetic and radio frequency fields.
