Hi, I'm trying to calculate the vibrational energy of a water droplet for a given vibrational amplitude. Rayleigh wrote about this in Proc. R. Soc. Lond., volume 29, 1879, "On the Capillary Phenomena of Jets", Appendix II, but he makes some simplifications (as I understand it) and I also have problems following parts of his calculus. Is anyone aware of a thesis or master thesis or similar on this subject where the work of Rayleigh is presented in a more accesible way? Thanks!
