Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics Questions and Answers  


You could work out the problem this way. Then, you'll have one more physical parameter and one more nondimensional number.




No you can not assume a small angle because you need to find the properties at any angle.




There is no mention of Poisson's equation in this question.




No not necessarily. We'll discuss this more in the next 2 classes. Just make sure you actually compute the vorticity correctly for now.




If you need information on where the streamlines lie (or where the surface lies), then you have to use the stream function.




When asked to find all of the stagnation points, it's possible there is only one or none.
