Abstract:

An equation proposed for the calculation of forces on a sphere accelerating in a viscous fluid Odar and Hamilton, 1964 AD-602 777 is verified by comparing the velocities of spheres falling under gravity in a viscous fluid with those calculated from the equation. The excellent agreement between the experimental and calculated values suggests wide application for the equation. Author
