Let Oxyz be a system of rectangular axes with origin at the earth's surface and with the z axis pointing vertically downwards. If a body B lies wholly] between the planes z=h, z=I then for all x, y and for n= 1, 2, 3 it is proved that
where a=h/d, β=l/d and K is the gravitational constant. Dn are very easily computed from the Bouger anomaly and Jn are tabulated in this paper.
