# <p> cylinder of length W is located near a plane wall and shown in the figure. The incoming flow has a

uniform velocity

2. [10 points] A cylinder of length W is located near a plane wall and shown in the
figure. The incoming flow has a uniform velocity U., and the downstream flow has a
linear velocity profile U = U.y/H. Assuming steady, constant density, constant
pressure flow, find:
a) The average velocity in the y-direction over the area located at y = H.
b) The x-component of the force exerted on the cylinder by the fluid. Neglect
viscous forces.
