It is proposed to satisfy this equation so far as terms of the order r2/a2 inclusive.
As a function of 0, r may be taken to be
r = r0 + Sr = r0 + rx cos 0 + rz cos
where r1} ra, &c. are constants small relatively to r0. It will appear that to our order of approximation (8r/r0)2 may be neglected and that it is unnecessary to include the r's beyond rs inclusive. We have
