Abstract : Extensive computations of free-molecule force coefficients on cones are presented in tabular form. The results allow quick determination of free-molecule values of C sub L, C sub D, C sub A, and C sub N for a given cone geometry, speed ratio, and temperature ratio. It is assumed that the gas molecules are reflected diffusely from the cone surface. (Author)
