Description

Sectional Committee: Physics

Recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. The paper cannot be shortened without loss of value and clarity. Finds the paper already too condensed to be easily readable. Suggests adding detailed references for the formulae.

Contains extra question - 'Is there any information contained in the paper which likely to be of value to the enemy?' Referee replies no.

[Published in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society]
