1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A glass tube is bent into a rectangular "U". Find expressions for the difference in the height hbetween the tops of the liquid columns when (a) the tube has linear acceleration a in the direction of the xaxis, (b) when the tube has uniform angular velocity ω about the yaxis. 2. Relevant equations F=ma, density 3. The attempt at a solution I have been working on this problem for days and am stuck. my physics teacher wont help me. [aL]\frac{}{}[/g] i think this is an expression for the first part but im not sure how to get to it.
