Problem 100P

Consider two identical glasses of water, one stationary and the other moving on a horizontal plane with constant acceleration. Assuming no splashing or spilling occurs, which glass will have a higher pressure at the (a) front, (b) midpoint, and (c) back of the bottom surface?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution

Introduction

Consider two identical glasses of water one is stationary and the other one is moving on a horizontal plane constant acceleration under the condition no splashing or spilling.

For the moving glass the water will collect at the back of the glass compared to the front but the water depth will constant at the center.

Step 1

a) The stationary glass will have higher pressure at the front of the glass because the water collected in back in case of the moving glass so in front the depth is less, by decrease in depth pressure will also decrease.
