It has been shown that the hodograph equations of motion can be derived in a symmetrical form by the choice of the velocity and the mass velocity as independent variables. The equations obtained by the use of the velocity potential, the stream function, or their transforms as the unknown function are of the same general form and therefore can be treated in the same manner.
