Question

After a good meal at a party you wash your hands and find that you have forgotten to bring your handkerchief. You shake your hand vigorously to remove the water as much as you can. Why is water removed in this process?

Solution

While shaking, our hand moves on a curved path with some angular velocity and water on our hand feels centrifugal force in the outward direction. Therefore, water get detached from our hand and leaves it.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
