Respected experts I hope you are fine. I am working on simulation of single bubble growth in a super heated domain. I would like to utilize axi symmetric condition. First of all I made the axis of symmetry on y-axis. But the simulation were not even unable to start giving divergence errors. Then on this forum I learnt from one post that the axis of symmetry must be x-axis. Otherwise It won't work. I made then the x-axis as the axis line. And simulations are working finely.My question is that the way I have adopted is it fine and is it true that the if y-axis if the axis of symmetry it won't work??
The second question is about the domain that I have made given below. The length of domain is 10mm vertically and 6mm horizontal. The vertical direction is along the negative of x-axis and horizontal is along y-axis. These seems like a vertical pipe placed horizontally The gravity value is put -9.8m/s2 in gravity condition. Is this axisymmetric approach right for my simulation??
I would be thankful If my questions are answered.

Using -9.8 m/s^2 as the X component of gravity makes the +X axis up.
Use +9.8 m/s^2 as the X component of gravity to make the -X axis up.
(In Mechanical, the opposite sign convention applies if you use Acceleration to model gravity.)

Oh sorry I did not take a notice of that. The other questions that I have asked are they fine.
