Problem 5.6 [Difficulty: 2] Given: The x-component of velocity in a steady, incompressible flow field Find: The simplest y-component of velocity for this flow field Solution: We will check this flow field against the continuity equation  0 t w z v y u x Governing Equations: (Continuity equation) Assumptions: (1) Incompressible flow ( ρ is constant) (2) Two dimensional flow (velocity is not a function of z) 0 y v x u Based on the two assumptions listed above, the continuity equation reduces to:
