The evanescence of ^ when ^ = 0 may arise from this axis being itself a boundary, or from the second boundary being a symmetrical curve situated upon the other side of the axis. In the former paper expressions for the "resistance" and "conductivity" were developed.
We will now suppose that -v|r = 0 along a circle of radius a, in substitution for the axis of x. Taking polar coordinates a + r and 6, we have as the general equation
-                    -         2        .

Assuming                       ty = J^r + It*r- + jft3?'3 + ... ,........................(6)
where Rl} R2, &c., are functions of 6, we find on substitution in (5)

If ^ = 1, (8) yields

expressing ^ as a function of 6, when r is known as such.    To interpolate a curve for which p takes the place of r, we have to eliminate 1^ between
,                              ,      ,,           p
and                            ^ = E3p - -£-

Thus                P = T*~^ (Pr2 ~ ^ + ^

1.2' — 0, and then no impressed bodily forces are called for either at rest or in motion.
