Abstract: An equation proposed for the calculation of forces on a sphere accelerating in a viscous fluid (Odar and Hamilton, 1964) is verified by comparing the velocities of spheres falling under gravity in a viscous fluid with those calculated from the equation. The excellent agreement between the experimental and calculated values suggests wide application for the equation.
