where il is a function of x, y, called the stream- or current-function; interpreted physically, ¢~¢0, the difference of the value of it at a fixed point A and a variable point P is the'flow, in ft.'*/ second, across any curved line AP from A to P, this being the same for all lines in accordance with the continuity.

Thus if dip is the increase of up due to a displacement from P to P', and' le is the component of velocity normal to PP", the flow across PP' is dd/=k.PP; and taking P ' parallel to Ox, di;/ = vdxpand similarly dt= -udy with PP' parallel to Oy; and generally dgb/dS is the velocity across ds, in a direction turned throug a right angle forward, against the clock.,

the path of a vortex is obtained by equating the value of it at the vortex to a constant, omitting the rm of the vortex itself. When the liquid is bounded by a cylindrical surface, the motion of a vortex inside may be determined as due to a series of vortex images, so arranged as to make the flow zero across the boundary. For a plane boundary the image is the optical reflection of the vortex. For example, a pair of equal opposite* vortices, molving on a line parallel to a plane boundary, wil have a corresponding pair of images, forming a rectangle of vortices, and the pat of a vortex will be the Cotes spiral

and this, by § 36, is also the ratio of the kinetic energy in the annular inter space between the two cylinders to the kinetic energy of the liquid moving bodily inside 1=b.

Consequently the inertia to overcome in moving the cylinder 1=b, solid or liquid, is its own inertia, increased by the inertia of liquid (a”+b')/(41/*~b') times the volume of the cylinder r=b; this total inertia is called the effective inertia of the cylinder r=b,
