A twodimensional incompressible frictionless flow field is given by $\overrightarrow{u} = x \hat{i} – y \hat{j}$. If $\rho$ is the density pf the fluid, the expression for pressure gradient vector at any point in the flow field is given as $\rho(x \hat{i}+y \hat{j})$ $ – \rho(x \hat{i}+y \hat{j})$ $\rho(x \hat{i} – y \hat{j})$ $ – \rho(x^2 \hat{i}+y^2 \hat{j})$
