Problem 1.126

Under the right conditions, it is possible, due to surfacetension, to have metal objects float on water. (See Video V1.9.)Consider placing a short length of a small diameter steel ( = 490lb/ft3) rod on a surface of water. What is the maximum diameterthat the rod can have before it will sink? Assume that the surfacetension forces act vertically upward. Note: A standard paper cliphas a diameter of 0.036 in. Partially unfold a paper clip and see ifyou can get it to float on water. Do the results of this experimentsupport your analysis?
