Returning to Roche's equation (118), we first observe that the condition, that for equilibrium the effective gravity should be directed inward, requires that the equatorial radius of the outermost level surface does not exceed the critical value Oc = (GM/ff) 1 ' 3 . (122) 11 We are greatly indebted to Dr. J. Ostriker and Mr. J. Mark for providing us with the results of their exact numerical integrations for rapidly rotating polytropes. [286] By choosing ac as the unit of length and 0 as the unit of frequency, we can rewrite equation (118) in the form v = - + f r 2 sin2 &, (123) r if i/Roche is measured in the unit (GMQ)213; and we suppose that U (also measured in the same unit) is some determinate function only of v.
