VOLUME 16, NUMBER 10 OCTOBER 2004 Response to “Comment on ‘Force on a spinning sphere moving in a rarefied gas’ and ‘On the inverse Magnus effect in free molecular flow’” [Phys. Fluids 16, 3832 (2004)] Patrick D. Weidman Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Colorado, Boulder, Colorado 80309-0427 Andrzej Herczynski Department of Physics, Boston College, Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts 02467-3811 (Received 15 April 2004; accepted 19 April 2004; published online 10 September 2004) [DOI: 10.1063/1.1784191] We would like to thank Dubinsky and Elperin for alerting us to the existence of two papers, one by Wang1 and the other by Ivanov and Yanshin,2 concerning bodies of revolution spinning about their axes of symmetry in free molecular streams. We were unaware of these contributions and thus omitted them from our discussion. In particular, we incorrectly stated that the problem for the spinning cylinder had not been considered before. Moreover, references provided by Ivanov and Yanshin2 include three papers which appeared in Russian journals in the 1960s, which apparently treat the same configuration using various approximations. We respectfully point out that the results in our Letter3 go beyond the work given in Refs. 1 and 2 and in Borg et al.4 in
