Abstract : Navier-Stokes equations for the motion of a sphere in a closed sphere with partial consideration of inertia components are solved. It is shown that by taking into account the inertia components of macromolecules, the friction coefficient will diminish with an increase in velocity. Such variation in the friction coefficient is noted for rigid particles (latexes and polymer chains with high thermodynamic rigidity. (AUTHOR)
