Abstract

My communication dated December 9, 1946, published in the issue of Nature of March 22, 1947, pp. 407—8, contains an error, due to hasty transcription, for which I owe an apology to those who have attempted to follow the derivation of the dimensionless equations. The seventh essential variable, the energy gradient i, should have been given as ρgS, and not as gRS. The kinematic viscosity v has also on p. 408 been replaced by μ the viscosity. The Reynolds number should appear as (RV/v) throughout.
