Homework Help: Need help understanding this Aerodynamics Question

  1. Jan 31, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    In the three-dimensional flow from a point source, the streamlines radiate in all directions from a point. If we designate the strength of the course as
    • Λ' show that |V|=
      • Λ'/4*Pi*r^2

    So I've been trying to read the text and understand what this asking/how to solve but I really don't understand the wording.

    To my understanding I need to use relate this to the equation of the divergence of velocity
    div V = ∂u/∂x + ∂v/∂y + ∂w/∂z, but other than that I'm not sure if I'm going in the right direction or not
