General Properties of a Uniform Incompressible Flow

We have the basic equations
$\displaystyle \rho {D{\bf v}\over Dt} = - \nabla p + \rho {\bf g},$     (2.16)
$\displaystyle \nabla \cdot {\bf v}$ $\textstyle =$ $\displaystyle 0,$ (2.17)
$\displaystyle \rho$ $\textstyle =$ $\displaystyle \hbox{const.}$ (2.18)
