Title          
  
 
Abstract
 Creeping flow (flow with Re << 1) past a sphere is described by Stokesí* celebrated solution (1851). The solution is formulated with the help of the streamfunction which ensures mass conservation on a differential level. However, if the streamlines and velocity contours for this flow are plotted, the image suggests that global continuity is violated. This can often lead to some confusion and doubt over the validity of the solution, so a simple demonstration follows to show that Stokesí solution also satisfies global mass conservation, despite the illusion presented by the streamlines and velocity contours.
