## Please submit your assignment (Question 1 below) through the assignment

box at the School of Mathematical Sciences Office WGB 157 by the due date:
15:30pm, 13 March 2017.

Please sign your submission to indicate that this is wholly your own
work.

## If you hand this assignment in late or to the wrong location or without

your signature indicating that this is wholly your own work, a mark of
zero will be recorded unless you make a case for mitigation by submitting
supporting documentation (e.g. medical certificates) to the School of
Mathematical Sciences Office WGB 157.

## Determine an expression for the shearing stress r ?

(b) For a flow field obtained by superimposing a uniform flow along +ve x-direction
and a free vortex located at the origin. Neglect the effect of the fluid weight.
Determine an expression for the pressure variation in this flow field in the form
of uniform velocity U , the vortex strength and the pressure p0 , far from
the origin. [Hint: consider polar coordinates and use Bernoulli equation once
velocity is determined.]
(c) i. State Navier-Stokes equation in cartesian coordinates and interpret each
term.
ii. For a two-dimensional incompressible flow in the cartisian coordinates (x, y),
show that the transport equation for the z-component of the vorticity (z )
reduces to
Dz
=0
Dt
for the inviscid fluid.
