Abstract

Earlier experiments by Hall(1) and also by Walmsley and Lane(2) on the angular momentum content of rotating liquid helium II have involved measurements of torque required to set a vessel of liquid into equilibrium rotation. Integrating the resultant torque-time measurements over the angular acceleration (or deceleration) period yielded thereby a measure of the angular momentum acquired by the helium. Since furthermore an integration over the volume of the vessel was involved, such methods produced composite, over all data.
