But this means than w ( z ) = f ( z ) + f ( z ) for z on the boundary, and thus w ( z ) w ( z ) = f ( z ) + f ( z ) ( f ( z ) + f ( z )) = 0 . (ii) The complex potential of the vortex at z is f ( z ) = i 2 ln( z z ), and thus w ( z ) = i 2 ln( z z ) + i 2 ln R 2 z z . Then the complex velocity which moves the vortex is u iv  z = z = i 2 R 2 z 2 ( R 2 /z z ) = i 2 h 2 R 2 z R 2 h 2 (iii) Complex conjugation leads to u + iv = 2 h 2 R 2 h 2 R 2 ( y ix ) . In vector notation, y + ix ( y,x ) = h , and thus u = 2 h R 2 h 2 R 2 Thus the vortex rotates around the cylinder clock wise at an angular speed = 2 h 2 R 2 h 2 R 2 . 2. (i) The complex potential of the two vortices in the upper half plane is w = i 2 ( ln( z z ) + ln( z + z )) f ( z ) , with the two vortices placed at z = s + ih and z = s + ih . Then the total potential in the presence of the wall at y = 0 is w = f ( z ) + f ( z ) = i 2 ( ln( z z ) + ln( z + z ) + ln( z z ) ln( z + z )) ....
