Abstract : The paper is devoted to a comparison between the theoretical re-emission law proposed by the Author in previous papers and the recent experimental results of Smith and Fite. The comparison enables us to determine time by time the values of the basic parameters s sub r and theta sub r and shows that assuming these values the agreement between theory and experiment is very good.
