    Sloshing of an inviscid liquid in a two-dimensional container performing arbitrary motions is considered. In particular, three special cases are considered : (1) The free oscillations of the liquid surface in a stationary container,(2) Sloshing due to in-plane accelerations of the container and (3) Sloshing due to the pitching motion of the container. Equations are written in the body fitted coordinates. A finite difference scheme is used to solve these equations and analytical results have been obtained to linearized equations. The presenl simple numerical scheme does not permit large amplitudes of sloshing.13; However, it is possible to calculate the general sloshing motion for moderate amplitudes. The analytical results give an insight into many aspects of the motion and help build confidence in the computational procedure.
