386 CHAPTER 4. KINEMATICS 4.16 Chapter 4, Problem 16 By definition, the velocity components in the Lagrangian description are u = X x t ~ x o ,y o = U and v = X y t ~ x o ,y o = x t + τ Hence, we can solve for x and y from the following differential equations: dx = Udt and dy = x t + τ dt Integrating the equation for x ,wef ind x = x o + Ut whereweassume x = x o at t =0 . Substituting for x , the equation for y becomes dy = x o + Ut t + τ dt = x o U τ + U ( t + τ ) t + τ dt = w x o U τ t + τ + U W dt Therefore, integrating once gives y =( x o U τ ) f n ( t + τ )+ Ut + C where C
