We do not accept Uberoi’s grounds for his statement that turbulent line vortices do not exist. They are based on experiments on a trailing vortex.(1) In Ref. 2, we have presented the conditions under which a turbulent trailing vortex may be approximated by a turbulent line vortex. These conditions are not satisfied by Uberoi’s experiment.
