Abstract

Marussi (1979, 1982, 1984) has studied the structure and the intrinsic reference system of the residual microgravitational — or tidal — field sensed in a satellite in inertial motion in the gravitational field of a planet. In the present paper we study the motion of a free particle and of a spherical pendulum in this field.
