Questions & Answers
Q: What are the main types of fluids discussed in the content?
The content explores various types of fluids, including uniform flow and potential flow along the ydirection.
Q: How is the uniform potential flow defined mathematically?
In uniform potential flow, the streamline function can be expressed as βΒ²Ο = 0, where βΒ²Ο is the Laplacian operator of the potential function Ο.
Q: Why does the content mention that the uniform potential flow is parallel to the yaxis?
The uniform potential flow is parallel to the yaxis because its velocity component (v) is nonzero along the positive yaxis, while the velocity component (u) along the positive xaxis tends to zero.
Q: How are the velocity potential function (Ο) and the streamline function (Ο) related in uniform potential flow?
In uniform potential flow, Ο and Ο are related through the equations βΟ/βx = u and βΟ/βy = u, where u is the velocity component along the yaxis.
