A 60-cm-high, 40-cm-diameter cylindrical water tank is being transported on a level road. The highest acceleration anticipated is 4 m/s2. Determine the allowable initial water height in the tank if no water is to spill out during acceleration.

Solution to 106P

Step 1</p>

In this question we need to determine the allowable height of water initially in the tank when no water is spilled out during acceleration.

is the angle between the tangent of the surface of water and the horizontal line.

For the rigid body motion of a linearly accelerating water body, the slope of isobars is given as

Acceleration along x axis=4m/s2

Acceleration along y axis=0m/s2
