How useful is Helmet's equation for the acceleration due to gravity? How did Helmet derive it? I need any and all background information on the equation or Mr. Helmet.

Are you sure you have the name right? I have never heard of a Helmet, or Helmet's equation... Where did you find this? Has any body else heard of Helmet?

Arthur Smith

Do you suppose he means Helmholtz?? If so, I do not know of any equation related to him that deals with the acceleration due to gravity.
