For this problem, assume steady potential flow. Γ Γ o o U U o o c 2 / (a) If the hydrofoil is designed to generate a constant circulation Γ = Γ o , calculate the lift on the wing (per unit span) L = L in open water. ow (b) If the hydrofoil now operates at a distance c 2 / above a horizontal bottom, calculate L = L for this near-bottom operation. b (c) For fixed hydrofoil geometry and orientation, the circulation generated is actually not
