A bounding surface is such that there is no flow°of fluid across it, as expressed by equation (6). The surface always contains the same fluid inside it, and condition (6) is satisfied over the complete surface, as well as an art of it. Y P But turbulence in the motion will vitiate the principle that a bounding surface will always consist of the same fluid particles, as we sec on the suiface of turbulent water. 24. To integrate the equations of motion, suppose the impressed force is due to a potential V, such that theiforce in any direction is the rate of diminution of V, or its downward gradient; and then X=-dV/dx, Y=-dV/dy, Z=-dV/dz; (1) and putting dw dv du dw dv du E, -&=2E» 5-;, =211, E-5-2r.

A small sphere of the fluid, if frozen suddenly, would retain this angular velocity. If w vanishes throughout the fluid at any instant, equation (11) shows that it will always be zero, and the fluid motion is then called 1rro ia1z onal; and a function ¢ exists, called the velocity function, suc t at udx+vdy+wdz==-do, (13) and then the velocity in any direction is the space-decrease or downward gradient of gb. 25. But in the most general case it is possible to have three functions ¢, ip, m of x, y, z, such that udx+vdy+wdz = -d4>-md¢, (1) as A.

Taking the axis of ix for an instant in the normal through a point on the surface H=constant, this makes u=o, £=o; and in steady motion the equations reduce to ~ dl-I/dv =2vg'-2w1, =2qw sin6, (4) where 0 is the angle between the stream line and vortex line; and this holds for'the1r projection on any plane to which dv is drawn perpendicular.

Calling the sum of the pressure and potential head the statical head, surfaces of constant statical and dynamical head intersect in lines on H, and the three surfaces touch where the velocity is stationary. Equation (3) is called Bernoulli's equation, and may be interpreted as the balance-sheet of the energy which enters and leaves a given tube of flow. If homogeneous liquid is drawn off from a vessel so large that the mption at the free surface at a distance maybe neglected, then Bernoulli's equation may be written ~ H=P/n+2+9'/2£=P/P+h, (5) where P denotes the atmospheric pressure and h the height of the free surface, a fundamental equation in hydraulics; a return has been made here to the gravitation unit of hydrostatics, and Oz is taken vertically upward.
