Abstract

This work presents expressions for determining the down-wash over the tail and the tail efficiency power-on and off. A method for the determination of empirical constants used by Millikan is presented. The method gives excellent agreement for the multiplicative factor Ap and good agreement for Bp. The theory checks experiment very well as Ap and Bp are nearly independent of Tc.
