I know that the water curves as the bucket rotates. Could someone explain the curve of the water with arguments borrowed from general relativity?

    $\begingroup$ Why would GR explain the water curvature? Are you thinking it might explain Mach's principle? $\endgroup$ Feb 6, 2023 at 10:54

  • $\begingroup$ Are you asking to explain why water makes a parabola? or the relation between the bucket argument and reference frames in general relativity? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Larsaseeidaklaxtarsa the two are very different in nature. One ask how to make the mathematical derivation of the surface of the liquid in a rotating frame using GR (this might be very hard). The other is a discussion of Mach principle and there are answers to that already physics.stackexchange.com/questions/660656/… $\endgroup$
