Reverting to the case where the. pressure inside the cavity is zero, or at any rate constant, we may proceed to calculate the pressure at any internal point. The general equation of pressure is

Thus, suitably determining the constant of integration, we get
At the first moment after release, when E= R0, we have

When r = R, that is on the boundary, p = 0, whatever R may be, in accordance with assumptions already made.
Initially the maximum p is at infinity, but as the contraction proceeds, this ceases to be true. If we introduce z to represent RQS/R3, (10) may be written
