Deformation of an advancing gas-liquid meniscus is considered in two cases: prewetted and dry capillary tubes. The shape, slope, and curvature of the gas-liquid interface are determined assuming small Weber and Bond numbers, i.e., in the case of negligible inertia and gravity terms. For the prewetted capillary case, the dynamic ...
