in a surface tension experiment with a cappilary tube water rises upto 0.1m,if the same experiment is repeated on an artificial satelite,which is revolving around the earth water will rise in the capillary tube upto a height of?a-0.1,b-0.2,c-0.98,d-full length

Height of capillary rise liquid is given by h = 2T/(rρg) . T is surface tension, r is radius of capillary tube, ρ is density and g is acceleration due to gravity.
Since acceleration due to gravity is in denominator and acceleration due to gravity is negligibly small at the orbit where satteleite is revolving around the earth, capillary rise will be very high. So 'full length' may be the correct answer
