This lesson covers the concept of flow through porous media, focusing on the continuity equation and the complex potential. It explains the potential function and stream function and their combination in terms of complex potential. The lesson further discusses how complex potential can be used in the study of flow through porous media. It also introduces the concept of complex velocity and its application in understanding elementary flows. The lesson concludes with an explanation of how to superpose elementary flows to understand complex flow situations. For instance, it explains how to superpose the elementary flows of a source, a sink, and a line source to understand where streamlines converge or diverge, indicating areas of high or low velocity.

- The complex potential, composed of the potential function and stream function, is a crucial concept in understanding flow through porous media.
- Complex velocity, derived from the complex potential, helps in understanding elementary flows.
- Elementary flows can be superposed to understand complex flow situations. For example, the elementary flows of a source, a sink, and a line source can be superposed to understand where streamlines converge or diverge.
- Understanding these concepts is crucial for studying and analyzing flow through porous media.
