Flux & Circulation: Circle & Square
- Juan Carlos Ponce Campuzano
Recall that if C is a piece-smooth, simple closed curve and v is a vector field in two dimensions; then
Net outward flux= and Circulation=The following simulation shows some values of the net outward flux and circulation for with C the circle of radius r (0≤r≤3) and C a square of side s (0≤s≤4) Instructions:
- Drag the point (left-side screen) to change the position of the curve C.
- Change the radius or side by dragging the slider Radius/Side.
