26 ROTATING CONTAINERS In this sztion we considsr the situation ofa liquid contained in a rotating eon- tainer, such as that shown in Fig. 210. After a rolativoly short time the liquid reaches static aquirium with respect to the container antl the rotating rz-rofor- ‘ence frame. The horizontal rotation will not alter the pressure distribution in the KEYCONCEPT Henin. vertical direction.
