D Some simple flows and their potentials D.1 Two dimensional flows We will give the answer either in Cartesians or polars, depending on which is more con- venient. Reminder: (i) in Cartesians, u = ( u,v, 0) and u = ∂φ ∂x = ∂ψ ∂y , v = ∂φ ∂y = - ∂ψ ∂x where φ is the velocity potential and ψ is the streamfunction. (ii) In polars, u = ( u r ,u θ , 0) and u r = ∂φ ∂r = 1 r ∂ψ ∂θ , u θ = 1 r ∂φ ∂θ = - ∂ψ ∂r .
