Question

# A liquid is kept in a cylindrical vessel which is rotated along its axis. The liquid rises at the sides as shown in figure below. If the radius of the vessel is 0.05 m and the speed of rotation is 2 rad s−1, find the difference in the height of the liquid at the centre of the vessel and its sides

Solution

## The correct option is C 2 cm According to Bernoulli's theorem ρ=12ρ v2=constant Near the ends, the velocity of liquid is higher so that pressure is lower as a result the liquid rise at the sides to compensate for this drop of pressure i.e.,ρ g h=12ρ v2=12ρ r2 w2 Hence,h=r2w22g =r2(2π v)22g =2π2r2v2g =2×π2× (0.05)2× 229.8 = 0.02 m = 2 cm
