1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
The problem is write this

d$$\Psi$$/dy(d^2$$\Psi$$/dxdy)-d$$\Psi$$/dx(d^2$$\Psi$$/dy^2=-$$\nu$$(d^3$$\Psi$$/dy^3)

in the form of -ff''=f'''
where

$$\Psi$$(x,y)=-sqrt(V*$$\nu$$*x)f($$\eta$$)

f($$\eta$$)=integral(from 0 to $$\eta$$)($$\Pi$$')*($$\overline{\eta}$$)*d($$\overline{\eta}$$) where $$\overline{\eta}$$ is a dummy variable

2. Relevant equations$$\prod$$

3. The attempt at a solution
I have just tried taking the derivatives using maple but to no avail. Please help! Also note that the small v is a multiplier and nothing is raised to the power. Please excuse my formatting.

also note initally the first equation was the navier stokes equation, then i substituted in the stream function.
