A vessel containing liquid is rotated about an axis. The liquid surface forms a paraboloid of rotation, the parameters of which will be determined as a function of the angular velocity.
- Didactical unique
- Interdisciplinary use also in applied sciences or physical chemistry
On the rotating liquid surface, the following are determined:
- the shape,
- the location of the lowest point as a function of the angular velocity,
- the curvature.
