Problem *3.115 [Difficulty: 2] Given: U-tube accelerometer Find: Acceleration in terms of h and L Solution: We will apply the hydrostatics equations to this system. Governing Equations: (Hydrostatic equation in x-direction) (Hydrostatic equation in y-direction) Assumptions: (1) Incompressible fluid (2) Neglect sloshing (3) Ignore corners (4) Both ends of U-tube are open to atmosphere In the coordinate system we are using, we can see that: a x a = a y 0 = g x 0 = g y g = a x p ρ =
