representing vortex motion circulating round the annulus 'of li uid.

qConsidered by itself, with the cylinders 'held fixed, the vortex sets up a circumferential velocity m/f on a radius r, so that the angular momentum of a circular fi ament of annular cross section dA is pmdA, and of the whole vortex is pm-r(b'¢-az). Any circular filament can be' started from rest by the application of a circumferential impulse vrpmdr at each end. of a diameter; so that a mechanism attached td the cylinders, which can set up a uniform distributed impulse vrpm across the two parts of a diameter in the liquid, will generate the vortex motion, and react on the cylinder with an impulse couple—pm-ra* and pmfbz, having resultant pm1r(b' »~a'), and this couple is infinite when b=oo, as the angular momentum of the vortex is infinite. Round the cylinder 1 =a held fixed in the U current the liquid streams past with velocity q' =2U sin 0+m/a; (2)

and the loss of head due to this increase of velocity from U to Q' is q”'~ U* =(2U sin 0+m/a.)' - U2 ii

so that cavitation will take place, unless the head at a great distance exceeds this loss.

The resultant hydrostatic thrust across any diametral plane of the cylinder will be modified, but the only term in the loss of head which exerts a -resultant thrust on the whole cylrnclexyis 2mU sin 0/ga, and its thrust is 2-rrpmU absolute units in the direction Cy, to be counteracted by a support at the centre C; the liquid is streaming past r=a with velocity U reversed and the cylinder is surrounded by a vortex. Similarly, the streaming velocity V reversed will give rise to a thrust 21-pmV in the direction xC. Now if the cylinder is released, and the components U and V are reversed so as to become the velocity of the cylinder with respect to space filled with liquid, and at rest at infinity, the cylinder will experience components of force perunit length ' 2 (i.) *2fpmV, , 2-rrpmU, due to the yortex motion: (ii.) -iirpazgéi, -vrpa'%¥, due to the kinetic reaction of the liquid; (iii.) o, —1|-(ir-p)a'g, due to gravity, ' ' V taking Oy vertically upward; and denoting the density of the cylinder by tr; so that the equations of motion are ~ 1r¢ra2%&g = - 1rpl1.%~ 21rpmV, (4) dV dV, ,

(0-I-p)tiU/ritjl-2pwV =O, (6)

(<f+P)¢iV/df'-2pwU +(<1-r>)g =0' (7) Thus with g=o, the cylinder will describe a circle with angular velocity 2P¢»1/(vrl-p), so that the radius is (a+p)v/zpw, if the velocity is v.. With ¢==0, the angular 'velocity of the cylinder is 2¢o; in this way the velocity may be calculated of the propagation-of ripples and waves on the surface of a vertical whirlpool in a sink. Restoring u will make the path of the cylinder a trochoid; and so the swerve can be explained of the ball in tennis, cricket, baseball, or golf.,

Another explanation may be given of the sidelong force, arising from the velocity of liquid past a cylinder, which is encircled by a vortex. Taking two planes x= =|=b, and considering the increase of momentum in the liquid between' them, due to the entry and exit of liquid momentum, the increase across dy in the direction Oy, due to elements at P and P' at opposite ends of the diameter PP', is pdy (U - Uazf” cos 2 0+mr'1 sin 0) (Ua'r“2 sin 2 0-1-mr°1cos0) + pdy (-U-l-Ua2r'“ cos 20-l-m7'x sin 0)(Ua2r°2 sin 20 -mr* cos0) =2pdymUf'1(C0S0 -a'r“2 cos 30), (8) “ and with y=b'ta.n 0, rsb sec 0, this is 2pmUd0(»1 -a'b"'cos 30 cos 0), V (9) and integrating between the limits 6= =1==}1r, the resultant, as before, is 21rpmU.
