In some researches on the bubble problem in the Rayleigh-Taylor instability, the bubble radius is identified with one-half spatial period. We show that these quantities are distinct. The bubble radius is significantly dependent on Bow parameters, and its measurement would determine the accuracy of theories and simulations. (C) 1999 American Institute of Physics.
