A change of fl and 0 into nfl and nb will give the solution for
two walls converging symmetrically to the orifice'AA1 at an an le i/n.
With 1l==§ , the re-entrant walls are given of Borda's moutiipiece,
and the coefficient of contraction becomes Q. Generally, by making
af = -oo, the line x'A' may be taken as a., straight stream line of
infinite length, forming an axis of symmetry; and then by duplication
the result can be ob-

The motion of a jet impinging on an infinite barrier is obtained by putting j =a, j'=a'; duplicated on the other side of the barrier, the motion reversed will represent the direct collision of two jets of unequal breadth and equal velocity. When the barrier is small compared with the jet, a.=B=B', and G. Kirchhoff's solution is obtained of a barrier placed obliquely in an infinite stream. Two corners B1 and B2 in the wall xA, with a' = -°°, and n=x, will give the solution, by duplication, of a jet issuing by a re entrant mouthpiece placed symmetrically in the end wall of the channel; or else of the channel blocked partially by a diaphragm across the middle, with edges. turned back symmetrically, problems discussed byj.
