Abstract

It is shown that a quantized vortex ring in superfluid He4, moving freely towards a flat plate, gives to it an impulse equal to the fluid impulse of the ring, provided only that the radius of the plate is larger than the initial vortex radius but smaller than the distance to the source of the ring. This is in agreement with experiment, in contradiction to two previous theoretical analyses.
