We conclude, therefore, that if we could relieve a body of liquid from the action of gravity and other outside forces, it would at once take the form of a perfect sphere. Shape Assumed by a Free Liquid". Essentials of Modern Physics.

New York: H. Since the molecules of liquids slide over one another readily, the force of gravity causes the surface of liquids to become level.

If the force of gravity can be nullified, a small portion of free liquid will then assume a spherical form. Dodd, Mead and Company. New York: D. Appleton and company. If a perfectly homogeneous mass of liquid be acted upon by a force which varies directly as the distance from the centre of the mass, the free surface will be of spherical form; if the mass rotates about an axis, the form assumed will be that of an oblate spheroid, which is the shape of the earth.

Schaum's outline of theory and problems of fluid dynamics. Boston, Mass: McGraw Hill. A simple example of irrotational flow is a whirlpool, which is known as a potential vortex in fluid mechanics. In a partly filled tank or fish hold, the contents will shift with the movement of the boat. This "free surface" effect increases the danger of capsizing.
