However, it has been shown [1] that, if the mean flow is steady and uniform, and, therefore, both homentropic and irrotational, the system of equations governing small-amplitude homentropic irrotational wave motion in such a flow reduces to the equation
However, if the mean flow is steady and uniform and, therefore, both homentropic and irrotational, the fluid velocity, u, will be constant and this latter equation will reduce to
