38 CHAPTER 11. POTENTIAL FLOW 11.32 Chapter 11, Problem 32 For a potential vortex, we know that u r =0 ,u θ = Γ 2 π r So, from Bernoulli’s equation, p ρ + 1 2 p u 2 r + u 2 θ Q = p ρ + 1 2 w Γ 2 π r W 2 = p ρ = p = p 1 2 ρ w Γ 2 π r W 2 Clearly, the solution is meaningless when p< 0 , which can occur as r approaches zero. Hence, the minimum value of r corresponds to the point where p =0 ,v iz . , 0= p 1 2 ρ w Γ 2 π

Unformatted text preview: 2 = r min = 2 2 p The density of mercury at 20 o C is = 13550 kg/m 3 . Also, the pressure as r is p = 100 kPa = 10 5 kg/(m sec 2 ). Thus, for the given values, r min = 10 m 2 / sec 2 &gt; : 13550 kg / m 3 2 [10 5 kg / (m sec 2 )] = 0 . 41 m...
