5. Consider the superposition of a free stream velocity, a source of strength m at (-a,0) and a sink of
strength m at (a,0). Write the stream function and potential function for the combination.
Determine the location of stagnation points.

6. Consider the superposition of a free stream and a vortex pair at (0,a) and (0,-a) of circulation
and - respectively. Obtain the stream function and potential function for the combination.
Determine the location of stagnation points.
