Hi, I am trying to solve a basic question from a Fluid dynamics text book. Could you help me with the answer? The question is as follows:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A closed vessel full of water is rotating with constant angular velocity [tex]\Omega[/tex] about a horizontal axis. Show that the surfaces of equal pressure are circular cylinders whose common axis is at a height [tex]g/\Omega^{2}[/tex] above the axis of rotation.

I don't know how to tackle this problem. Is there a technique in solving such theoretical questions?

Thanks,

P.S:- This is not a homework or coursework question. I am also new to Physics forum, and hence, my question may not be appropriate for this section. In that case please tell me in which section I should pose fluid dynamics questions.
