Oscillation of Water

  1. Mar 14, 2012 #1
    Hi Guys,

    In physics we are investigating the movement of a half-full water bottle accelerated by a constant force. The bottle moves in one direction, before slowing and then oscillating back and forth, similar to what was described in this thread.


    I have noticed that as you increase the amount of water, the oscillations increase, up to a point.

    How is this whole phenomena explained?

    The frequency of the oscillations increases as you add water?
