So, in the case of the water, it seems likely that surface tension plays a role here -- once you have a gap, the surface tension wants to assume the shape that balances the centripetal force with the gravitational pull sucking it back into the hole... I guess rather than being curved (like a miniscus) it ends up being polygonal (same as how atoms in molecules distribute themselves into interesting polygons).

That offers an interesting model for the fluid dynamics, but isn't the behavior of a gas quite different from that of a liquid, especially considering that water is itself a pretty unusual liquid?

I received 1 st loan when I was 32 and it supported me very much. But, I require the college loan over again.

mortgage loans

Every body admits that life seems to be not cheap, but people need money for different stuff and not every one gets big sums money. Thence to receive quick home loans and commercial loan would be a correct solution.

Coursework

I think bizarre geometric shapes that appear at the centre of swirling vortices in planetary atmospheres might be explained by a simple experiment with a bucket of water.

loans

I received my first home loans when I was not very old and that supported my business very much. Nevertheless, I need the student loan again.
