Verification of the proposed equation for calculation of the forces on a sphere accelerating in a viscous fluid

  • Fuat Odar (a1)

The equation which was proposed for the calculation of forces on a sphere accelerating in a viscous fluid is verified by comparing the velocities of spheres falling under gravity in a viscous fluid with those calculated from the equation.
