Solution

## The correct option is A r2ω22gWhen the cylindrical vessel is rotated at angular speed ω about its axis, the velocity of the liquid at the sides is maximum, given by vs=rωApplying Bernoulli's theorem at the sides and at the center of the vessel, we haveP+12ρv2= constant Ps+12ρvs2=Pc+12ρvc2where Ps= pressure at the sides vs= velocity of the liquid at the sidesPc= pressure at the center vc= velocity of the liquid at the centerPc−Ps=12ρvs2=12ρr2ω2 ...(I) ∵vc=0Since Pc is greater than Ps, the liquid rises at the sides of the vessel. Let h be the difference in the levels of the liquids at the sides and at the center, so we have Pc−Ps=ρgh ...(II)from (I) and (II) we have ρgh=12ρr2ω2⇒h=r2ω22g
