Unformatted text preview: making of a whirlpool consists of liquid, gravity, and centrifugal force, when liquid is rotated, the forces of gravity meet the centrifugal force, which results in the liquid forming a parabola shape. The most common example of parabolas is a whirlpool; it rotates around its axis.
