QUESTION: 1

### A 2-D flow having velocity V = (x + 2y + 2)i + (4 - y)j will be

Solution:

X component of the velocity = Vx = u = x+ 2y+ 2;
y component of the velocity = Vy = v = 4-y;
z component of the velocity = Vz = w =0
Continuity Equation for the incompressible flow must be satisfied which is given by—
∂u/∂x+∂v/∂y+∂w/∂z = 0
Therefore, (∂(x+2y+2))/∂x+(∂(4-y))/∂y+(∂(0))/∂z= 1 -1 +0 = 0
Hence, the flow is incompressible.
For flow to be irrotational,
Angular Velocity = ω ⃗=1/2 (curl ( v) ⃗ )
x- component of angular velocity -> ω ⃗_z=0.5 (∂v/∂x-∂u/∂y) = 0
Since the flow is 2-d and no z- component of velocity, therefore, x and y components of the velocity will be automatically zero.

Hence, the flow is incompressible and irrotational.
