Problem 5: Book Problem 2.

GIVEN
Consider a velocity field where the radial and tangential components of velocity are given by: Vr := 0 Vθ = c⋅ r

FIND
Obtain the equations of the streamlines

ASSUMPTIONS
(1) c is a constant (2) 2-D flow

SOLUTION
u = Vr⋅ cos( θ) − Vθ⋅ sin( θ) v = Vr⋅ sin( θ) + Vθ⋅ cos( θ) z=z u = −c⋅ r⋅ v = c⋅ r⋅ x r y r = −c⋅ y

= c⋅ x

Using the same techniques from previous problems.... dy dx = v u c⋅ x −c⋅ y →− x y

y + x =k
