The initial conditions of the linearized Rayleigh problem in slip flow are modified so as to satisfy the free molecule flow conditions at the start of the motion. Approximate initial profiles for velocity and temperature are chosen which would yield correct values of velocity slip, temperature jump, and so on, at the start of the motion. The continuum solutions with the modified initial conditions and slip boundary conditions are found to be uniformly valid for all times of motion and agree well with the results of the kinetic theory analyses of the problem.
