4.6. CHAPTER 4, PROBLEM 6 375 4.6 Chapter 4, Problem 6 4.6(a): Since the given velocity vector is u = U w 1+ x L W i U y L j the acceleration vector is thus a = u t + u · u = u u x + v u y This is true because the flow is steady ( / t 0 ) and two dimensional ( / z 0 ). So, u x = U L i and u y = U L j Hence, the acceleration is a = U w 1+ x L Ww U L i W U y L w U L j W = U 2 L w 1+ x L W i + U 2 L y L j Upon regrouping terms, the acceleration vector is
