This paper presents formulae for calculating the gravitational attraction, at points on their central vertical axes, of several solids of revolution. Such calculations are sometimes desirable to find the maximum anomalies which may be caused by geologic bodies which are assumed to have the approximate shape of a solid of revolution. A reasonable set of density differences must be used in such preliminary gravity calculations to find the limits of the anomalies to be expected. A table of formulae is presented.
