Fluid subject to acceleration

  1. While working on fluid dynamics problems I noticed that the incline angle sometimes starts at middle while other times starts at one end. Is there an explanation for this?

    I know the slope =(linear a)/(gravitational g)

    It probably has to do with convenience of coordinate system definition for a given problem.
