Abstract

The reversible two-fluid equations of helium II are shown to possess two integrals of circulation. The first, which expresses conservation of circulation in the superfluid, is well known, but the second, which expresses conservation of the line integral of rhon(un–us)/(rhos) around a circuit moving with the normal fluid, appears to be new.
