Question
We stated in Example 11.12 that a xylem tube is of radius $2.50 \times 10^{-5} \textrm{ m}$. Verify that such a tube raises sap less than a meter by finding $h$ for it, making the same assumptions that sap's density is $1050 \textrm{ kg/m}^3$ , its contact angle is zero, and its surface tension is the same as that of water at $20.0^\circ\textrm{C}$.

$0.565 \textrm{ m}$
