Abstract : A theory is developed from first principles which includes all the important physical processes which affect the frequency of the free oscillations of a gas bubble. The components of the damping: viscosity, thermal conduction in the gas, and acoustic radiation are all determined. Numerical results for the damping are given for air bubbles in water. (Author)
