If I pour water of different amounts into a puddle on a level surface, it appears by eye that both puddles have the same height. The water seems to retain itself into a puddle by surface tension. I have two questions:
(1) Does the height of a puddle of water on an infinite level surface depend on the material out of which the surface is made?
(2) Does the height of the puddle vary depending on how much water is in the puddle?
