Homework Help: Fluid Dynamics question

  1. Mar 7, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I tried a few different things, they all involve finding u and v components of velocity. I know the stagnation point is at y = 0. I also know that at stagnation u = v = 0.

    If I get the velocity magnitude and set it equal to 0 and set y equal to 0, I still have too many variables to solve for anything.

    What is your equation for the overall stream function? What are your equations for the components of the velocity (which are very easy to obtain without using the stream function)?

    I did manage to figure it out on my own last night. Thanks for the reply.
