"Lie a cylinder on its side and fill it with
a liquid. How deep is the liquid when the cylinder is a quarter
Simplify and simulate this situation in the 2D case
of filling a circle with an area under a horizontal chord and some
very complex mathematics emerges.
This file allows students to dynamically explore
the relationship between the 'area' of the liquid and the depth
of the liquid.
