Question

The surface of a liquid is just able to support the weight of a six – legged insect. The leg ends can be assumed to be spheres each of radius and the weight of the insect is distributed equally over the six legs. The coefficient of surface tension in this case is and the angle of the footfall with respect to the vertical is (see figure). The mass of the insect is closed to –
