The oscillation of liquid in U tube which has an acceleration

  1. Dec 2, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The U tube contains the liquid.The length of the liquid in U tube is L. If U tube has an acceleration a in X-axis and we make liquid a small oscillation.Find the period of oscillation.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I know the answer is 2[tex]\pi[/tex][tex]\sqrt{\frac{L}{2\sqrt{g2+a2}}}[/tex] but I don't know how to prove it.So,please help me.
