Problem
A ﬁlm of a viscous ﬂuid with de sity p and viscosity u flows due to gravity down the
slope with angle [3 (see the Fig; ). The ﬁlm is uniform (no waves) and its thickness is
h. Calculate the volumetric

Mid-semester exam: Spring 2012
Problem 1
An open cylindrical bucket is rotated about the Z axis with the angular velocity 03 =
100 s'1 (Fig. l). The initial liquid level in the bucket h = 10 cm. The bucket height is
H = 20 cm. Gravity acceleration g = 9.8
