Fluids in Rigid Body Rotation

  1. Feb 5, 2007 #1
    I have found many cases of fluids entering rigid body motion where the gravity vector is purely down the rotation vector. I am curious if there is a soultion for where the gravity vector is in another direction.

    I've attempted to solve this myself for a particular rotation, but it is so fast my parabola's vertex is below 0. This itself presents additional problem as most vertical solutions don't even account for this.

    If anyone has seen soultions for either of these problems (non-vertical gravity fields and very fast rotations), please let me know. I'd greatly appreciate being pointed in the correct direciton.
