A steady, incompressible, two-dimensional (in the xy-plane) velocity field is given by
Calculate the acceleration at the point (x, y) = (-1.55, 2.07).
We need to find the acceleration at the point (x,y)=(-1.55,2.07) using the velocity field equation. The flow is steady, incompressible and two dimensional field.
We need to differentiate the field equation using chain rule and find the x and y components of acceleration.
Let the components of velocity field be,
