Inverse solutions of the equations of motion of an incompressible second grade or order fluid are obtained by assuming certain forms for the stream functions a priori. The equations considered are in plane polar coordinates, axisymmetric polar coordinates and in axisymmetric spherical polar coordinates. Expressions for stream lines, veiocity components and pressure distributions are given explicitly, in each case, and are compared with the corresponding results of a viscous fluid.
