Problem 31

The flow lines (or streamlines) of a vector field are the
paths followed by a particle whose velocity field is the
given vector field. Thus the vectors in a vector field are
tangent to the flow lines.
(a) Use a sketch of the vector field $\mathbf{F}(x, y)=x \mathbf{i}-y \mathbf{j}$ to
draw some flow lines. From your sketches, can you
guess the equations of the flow lines?
(b) If parametric equations of a flow line are $x=x(t)$ ,
$y=y(t),$ explain why these functions satisfy the dif-
ferential equations $d x / d t=x$ and $d y / d t=-y .$ Then
solve the differential equations to find an equation of
the flow line that passes through the point $(1,1)$ .

Problem 32

(a) Sketch the vector ficld $\mathbf{F}(x, y)=\mathbf{i}+x \mathbf{j}$ and then

lines appear to have?

$y=y(t),$ what differential cquations do these func-
tions satisfy? Deduce that $d y / d x=x$ .

given by $\mathbf{F},$ find an equation of the path it follows.
