Unformatted text preview: infinite parallel plates separated by distance h, with both the top plate and bottom plate stationary, and a forced pressure gradient dP / dx driving the flow as illustrated in the figure below. (note that dP / dx is constant and negative ) The flow is twodimensional in the xy plane.

If it is rotational, calculate the vorticity component in the z direction. Do fluid particles in this flow rotate clockwise or counterclockwise? b) Calculate the linear strain rates in the x and y direction and calculate the shear strain rate c) Is the flow compressible? d) Is the flow steady?...
