Fay and Riddell's theory for laminar heat trans fer at the stagnation point is applied to the sphere in equilibrium air and nitrogen. Charts are presented of the heat-transfer rate as a function of stagnation temperature and pressure or free-stream velocity and stagnation pressure in the pressure range between 0.1 and 10 A. and in the temperature range from 2000 to 15,000 K. The effects of Lewis number are considered. Com parisons between Fay and Riddell's theory, the recent theory of Fay and Kemp, and Shock-tube experiments are presented.
