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:

  1. the shape,
  2. the location of the lowest point as a function of the angular velocity,
  3. the curvature.

What you can learn about

  • Angular velocity
  • Centrifugal force
  • Rotary motion
  • Paraboloid of rotation
  • Equilibrium
