Given two surfaces and a fluidic glue with sufficient adhesion, what is the force provided by the capillary bridge provided the cohesive properties of the glue, volume, and distance between the surfaces?

So, for water, there should exist a function f such that f(Volume, distance) is the force of attraction between two parallel flat surfaces which water is attracted to more than itself.

I can ignore gravity and elasticity of the surfaces and perhaps an assumption on the surrounding air pressure.
