Fluids in Equilibrium

  1. Jun 9, 2010 #1
    Suppose I have a fluid of uniform density confined to a roating cylinder of radius [tex]r[/tex] turning at an angular speed of [tex]\Omega[/tex].

    Now I am considering the fluid in the rotating frame and I know that the fluid is in equilibrium. What does this imply?

    If the fluid is in equilibrium are there any internal motions? Is the velocity 0? Why?
