h = 4q cosQ/ 2gd. So h is inversely proportional to d.

h = 4*t*cos (x)/wd, where, keeping all term constant.

We can say that rise or fall is inversely proportional to dia of tube.

D is inverlsly propositional to H.

h=4 * ρ 8cosq/wd.
ρ(surface tension) is directly proportional to d.
So, the surface tension increases.

How? Please explain in clear.

Units of surface tension is N/m, so surface tension is inversaly proportional to the diameter of tube. The diameter mentioned in m, mm, cm etc.

P = (4*Σ)/d.

P is inversely proportional to the diameter

Due to capillary action the rise or fall of liquid in a tube is calculated by the formula.

h = ( 2*t*cosY)/(ρ*g*r) or = ( 4*t*cosY)/(w*d).

Therefore h is inversely proportional to d.
