Quiz 2
Takehome 48 hours, Totally 25 points
Due Thursday 4 p.m. 05/17/07, Focused on Lecture 12 to 25 (Last Lecture)
Note that you are not allowed to collaborate or share your thoughts about the problems. Please
state your assumptions and write down clearly what you think about the problems even if you cannot
solve them to the endpoint. Furthermore, note that we do not need you to attach your codes and we
will not look through them to find what you have done, instead explain your method.
Problem 1 (5 points):
The boundary layer equation for the selfsimilar incompressible flow over a flat plate can be
cast as the following equation and boundary conditions set:
f
