LET be the angular velocity round the axis; then when the water and cylinder are relatively at rest, the surface of the water will be that of a certain solid of revolution, whose ordinate, normal, and subnormal, referred to the axis of rotation, will represent the centrifugal force, the re-action of the fluid, and the force of gravity, respectively.
