(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The book im reading just randomly states that the axial velocity for a fully developed laminar flow in a pipe is vx=2*u*(1-r^2/ro^2). i am not sure where this comes from. does come from the navier stokes equations?

also, is there a book that lists other types of axial velocities for flows in a duct with different width and height ratios?

2. Relevant equations

navier stokes?

3. The attempt at a solution
