A solution, exact within the framework of linear elastokinetics, is obtained for a vibrating, elastic, arbitrarily thick spherical shell subject only to a spherically symmetric body force field of the form FR (r, τ) = Fr (r)Ft (τ). Fr (r) is taken in the form of a polynomial whereas Ft (τ) is restricted only to being a sectionally continuous function of time.
