The figure shows a model of perfume atomizer. When the bulb A is compressed, air flows through the narrow tube consequently pressure at the position of the vertical tube reduces. The liquid (perfume) rises in through the vertical tube and emerges through the end. If the excess pressure applied to the bulb in this process be $\Delta P$ then the minimum speed of air in the tube to lift the perfume is A. $\sqrt {\dfrac{{2{\text{ }}(\Delta P{\text{ }} + {\text{ }}\rho gh)}}{{{\rho _a}}}} \:$
B. $\sqrt {\dfrac{{2{\text{ }}(\Delta P{\text{ }} - {\text{ }}\rho gh)}}{{{\rho _a}}}} \:$
C. $\sqrt {\dfrac{{\Delta P{\text{ }} + {\text{ }}\rho gh}}{{{\rho _a}}}} \:$
D. None of these
