Tom just started working as an undergraduate research assistant
in a fluid mechanics laboratory. One of the priority tasks that he
needs to learn is how to construct streamlines to represent an actual
flow field. Tom is given the following velocity profiles:
u = -5y/(x2+y2)
and v = 5x/(x2+y2)
Construct streamlines and pathlines for
the given flow field.
The given flow field is independent of time, hence it is steady.
