Assume a two-dimensional flow over a flat plate. Use the

result of Problem 1 for the thickness of the boundary layer and the velocity

profile for Vx, as given by Equation IVb.2.1 and obtain a relation

for Vy. [Hint: Use the equation for continuity given by Equation IIIa.3.13-1].

Problem 1

Start with Equation IVb.2.7 and obtain an approximate

relation for the thickness of the hydrodynamic boundary layer. Compare your

result with the exact solution.
