± 18.085 - Mathematical Methods for Engineers I Prof. Gilbert Strang Solutions - Problem Set 7 3.4, Problem 4. Show that u = r cos + r 1 cos solves Laplace’s equation (13), and express u in terms of x and y . Find v = ( u x , u y ) and verify that v n = 0 on the circle x 2 + y 2 = 1. This is the velocity of flow · past a circle in Figure 3.18. Show u = r cos + r 1 cos solves Laplace’s equation: Laplace’s equation in r, ∂ is: 2 u 1 u 1 2 u + + = 0 . (13) r 2 r r r 2 2 Now, if u = r cos + r 1 cos , then u u = cos r 2 cos = r sin r 1 sin r 2 u 3 2 u 1 r 2 = 2 r cos 2 = r cos r cos ∂. Plugging this into the left-hand side of (13), we get 2 r 3 cos + 1 (cos r 2 cos ) + 1 ( r cos r 1 cos ) = (2 1 1) r 3 cos + (1 1) 1 cos = 0 , 2 r r r as desired. U in ( x, y ): y Now, since x = r cos ∂, y = r sin r = x 2 + y 2 , ∂ = tan 1 ² ³ . So x x x (1 + x 2 + y 2 ) u = r cos + r 1 cos = x + = .
