Abstract Summary. The second‐order internal theory of hydrostatic equilibrium initially developed by Kopal is extended to form equations equivalent to those of de Sitter. This new development is used together with the density distribution of Dziewonski, Hales & Lapwood to compute flattening, precessional constant and moments of inertia of the hydrostatic earth. These values are compared with those of the real Earth. Copyright
