Constants Used
pi - Archimedes' constant Value Taken As 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288
Variables Used
Stream Function - (Measured in Square Meter per Second) - The Stream Function is defined as the quantity of fluid moving across some convenient imaginary line.
Strength of Doublet - (Measured in Square Meter per Second) - The Strength of doublet is considered in the potential flow.
Length Y - (Measured in Meter) - Length Y is the vertical distance from the origin to the y coordinate.
Length X - (Measured in Meter) - Length X is simply the distance from the origin to the x coordinate.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Strength of Doublet: 7 Square Meter per Second --> 7 Square Meter per Second No Conversion Required

## What is stream function?

A family of curves ψ = constant represents "streamlines," hence, the stream function remains constant along a streamline. The stream function represents a particular case of a vector potential of velocity, related to velocity by the equality.

## What is doublet?

The doublet consists of a source and sink of momentum located in close proximity to one another. The analytical solution to the doublet was shown to be: where φ is the velocity potential and ψ is the stream function.
