Council Rock High School
We will be testing the applicability of capillary action in microgravity. Capillary action is a combination of cohesion (water’s tendency to stick to itself) and adhesion (water’s tendency to stick to other surfaces). Our experiment consists of a plastic base that we will use to house various fluids, multiple capillary tubes of varying diameters will be placed in each fluid, and a stopper system will allow the experiment to begin and end.
The Council Rock PowerPoint contains all the information about their project including a Functional Block Diagram, Storyboard and other information specific to their experiment.
