Unformatted text preview: y and comparing to the equation for / y above, y = f I ( y ) = f I ( y ) = U y a = f ( y ) = Uy 2 2 a + constant Therefore, the velocity potential is ( x, y ) = U ^ x + y 2 2 a + constant The flow is incompressible if u vanishes. To check, u = u x + v y = x ( U ) + y w U y a W = U a W = 0 Thus, the flow is not incompressible ....
