ME220A 1 Homework 1 (due at 12:30 pm on October 17, 2011) Problem 1. Prove the following vector identities ( a ) ( a × b ) · c = a · ( b × c ) , ( b ) t × ( u × v ) = u ( t · v ) - v ( t · u ) , ( c ) ∇ × ( u × v ) = ( v · ∇ ) u - ( u · ∇ ) v + u ( ∇ · v ) - v ( ∇ · u ) , ( d ) ( u · v ) = ( u · ∇ ) v + ( v · ∇ ) u + u × ( ∇ × v ) + v × ( ∇ × u ) . Problem 2. Consider the vector w = n × ( v × n ), where v is arbitrary and n is a unit vector. In which direction does w point, and what is its magnitude? Problem 3. Deduce the vorticity form of the NSEs for incompressible fluid in 2D and 3D. Problem 4. Derive the evolution equation for the kinetic energy of incompressible vis- cous fluid in (a) a volume bounded by a solid boundary, and (b) an infinite channel. Problem 5. Estimate density variation in a compressible isentropic flow. Problem 6. If the entropy s is considered as the dependent variable, what are the proper definitions for T , p , and μ (the chemical potential)? Problem 7. Find the isothermal compressibility coefficient

Reduce the continuity equation for 2D unsteady compressible ow to the one for 2D incompressible ow using the transformation: = t, = x, = Z y ( t,x,y ) d y, (1) and redening the y-component of velocity appropriately. Hint : use the conection operator in your considerations. Problem 9. Consider uid occupying a half-space. At its free surface there are a constant pressure p and a constant shear stress T applied. Determine how much time it takes for the velocity at depth z to take its half-value of the velocity at the free surface. Calculate the value for water and the depth of 100 m. Give your physical interpretation of the result....
