Description

Sectional Committee: Physics and Chemistry

Lamb thinks the paper should be published in the Philosophical Transactions, in full. He does not suggest any alterations and there are no illustrations. In general the paper is an interesting piece of evidence in favour of the theory already advocated by its author in Philosophical Transactions.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1905].
