Forces on a sphere moving steadily along a circular path in a viscous fluid are measured and it is found that within the experimental range both the tangential and normal forces are dependent on the Reynolds number and not on the radius of the path; and it is found that the conventional drag coefficient can also be applied to a rotational motion.
