Water rises to height 1.2 cm in capillary tube on the surface of earth. How the height of water column will be affected when the apparatus is taken to the moon?

The height to which the liquid rises into the capillary tube is inversely proportional to the acceleration due to gravity. On the surface of the moon, acceleration due to gravity is 1/6th as that on the surface of the earth. Therefore, water will rise to a height 6 times than on the surface of the earth. 

So, height of water on the surface of the moon = 7.2 cm

Why solids have definite shape while liquids do not have definite shape?

Solids: Intermolecular forces are very strong and thermal agitations are not sufficiently strong to separate the molecules from their mean position. Solids are rigid and hence they have definite shapes.
Liquids: In liquids intermolecular forces are not sufficiently strong to hold the molecules at definite sites, as a result they move freely within the bulk of liquid, therefore, do not possess definite shapes. Liquids take the same shape as that of the container.

What is hydrostatics?

Hydrostatics is the branch of fluid mechanics that studies incompressible fluids at rest. The study of fluids at rest or objects placed at rest in fluids is hydrostatics.
