In this paper we consider the linearized Navier-Stokes equations in two dimensions under specified boundary conditions. We study both the continuous case and a discretization using a second order finite difference method on a staggered grid and derive estimates for both the analytic solution and the approximation on staggered grids. We present numerical experiments to verify our results.
