Fluid subject to acceleration

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

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.
