This note, prepared for publication by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, is a collection of the tables of the factor of apparent mass that have been published up to now. The theory of the motion of solids in a perfect fluid is of the greatest value for the study of most aerodynamic problems, and the additional apparent mass of an immersed solid is the most important characteristic for such theoretical numerical computations. It will therefore be helpful to have the most important values of the apparent mass - for some elementary cases - collected in a convenient form.
