Currently, the generally accepted method of solving problems concerning the capillarity theory is to make use of the two well-known relationships: the Laplace formula
$$ \Delta \,\,p = {\sigma _1}\left( {\frac{1}{{R1}} + \frac{1}{{R2}}} \right)\,\, $$
and Young’s equation
$$ {\sigma _1}\,\cos \,\alpha \, = \,{\sigma _2}\, - \,{\sigma _3}. $$
