Abstract : The Eulerian equations for the precession and nutation of fluid bodies undergoing spheroidal deformation, deduced in the preceding report of this series are now particularized to the form in which they can be solved as ordinary differential equations for the time-dependent Eulerian angles theta, phi as well as for the angular velocity omega sub z' of axial rotation, with account being taken of variable deformation produced by dynamical tides.
