Referee's report by Douglas Rayner Hartree, on a paper 'On the calculation of surface tension from measurements of pendant drops' by S Fordham

Reference number: RR/70/104

Date: 1947

Description

Sectional committee: Physics

Is unsure whether to recommend for publication in Proceedings. The extent of the paper is slight and its style is 'rather naive'. There are a number of modifications that should be made. If a referee who is familiar with the use of results regards it of sufficient importance to be published, he will approve publication.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1948].
