Bx, where B is aconstant. If this flow possesses a stream function, find its form. If it has a velocitypotential, find that also. Compute the local angular velocity of the flow, if any, anddescribe what the flow might represent.

 Hint 
: Try polarcoordinates.
Solution:
Using polar coordinates is certainly an excellent hint! Then the velocitypotential translates simply to
φ

C ln(

Consider a flow with constant density and viscosity. If the flow possesses a velocitypotential as defined by Eq. (8.1), show that it exactly satisfies the full Navier-Stokesequation (4.38). If this is so, why do we back away from the full Navier-Stokes equationin solving potential flows?

Solution:
If

 The Bernoulli relation is an exact solution of Navier-Stokes for potential flow. We don’texactly “back away,” we need also to solve
