so that the effective inertia of a sphere is increased by half the weight of liquid displaced; and in frictionless air or liquid the sphere, of weight W, will describe a parabola with vertical acceleration V-Y, 'l,5%g no

When the spheres are not concentric, an expression for the effective inertia can be found by the method of'*irnag|es (W. M. Hicks, Phil, Trans., 1880). »-The

image of a 'source of strcn h /4 at S outside a s here of radius a is a source of strength pa/gat H, where OS =f, OpH=a'/f, and a line sink reaching from the image H to the centre O of line strength - ii/a; this combination 'wil be found to produce no How across the surface of the sphere. v Taking Ox along OS, the Stokes' function at P for the source S is it cos PSx, and of the source H and line sink OH is »;¢(a, [f).cos Pl-fx and - (/1/a)(PO - PH); so that, , ip = p (cos P'5x+?cosPHx-'QQ-E-E, (4) and il/ = -p, a constant, over the surface of the sphere, so that there is no flow across.

When the source S is inside the sphere and H outside, the line sink must extend from H to infinity in the ipaage system; to realize physically the condition of zero How across the sphere, an equal sink must be introduced at some other internal point S'. When S and S' lie on the same radius, taken along Ox, the Stokes function caube written clown; and when S and S' coalesce a doublet is produced, with a doublet' image at H.

There is no- Stokes' Lunction when the axis of the doublet at S does not pass through O; the imager system will, consist of an inclined doublet at H, making an equa angle with OS as the doublet S, and of a parallel negative line doublet, extending from H to O, of moment varying as the distance from O. ' ', A distribution of sources and doublets over' a moving surface will enable an expression to be obtained. for the velocity function of a body movinfg in the presence of a. fixed sphere, or, inside it. The method o electrical images will enable the stream function ¢ to be inferred from a distribution of doublets, finite in number when 'the surface is composed of two, spheres intersecting at an angle wr/m, where m is an integer (R.
