## Homework Statement

In addition to the customary horizontal velocity components of the air in the atmosphere, there often are vertical air currents cuased by buoyant effects due to uneven heating of the air.

Problem: Assume that the velocity field in a certain region is approximated by u=uo, v=vo(1-y/h) for 0<y<h, and u=uo, v=0 for y>h. Plot the shape of the stream line that passes through the origin for values of uo/vo=0.5, 1, and 2.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

How do I solve for the line? I got so far by doing dy/dx=v/u ... x=c(y-1/(2h)*y^2)
