Her capillarity has brought the water in both tubes to the same height.
A rain drop's roundness is due to the action of capillarity.
Its place is taken by water brought from below by capillarity.
Sufficient moisture for germination is derived from capillarity.
The foregoing phenomena are called capillary action, or capillarity.
In its full extension the subject of capillarity is very wide.
It makes the soil finer, thus increasing the surface for holding film water and enabling it to conduct more water by capillarity.
The velocity of the current of air likewise facilitates the action of capillarity by carrying the oil to the top of the wick.
Because of the influence of capillarity, the water table is not a horizontal surface.
Mr. Lake: But the capillarity of the soil provides water for the tree above the water-table.
