An approximate solution to the velocity distribution in a submerged axisymmetric, laminar jet which issues from a long tube is presented. The solution is a modification of that of Okabe [17] and takes into account the changes that occur in the parabolic profile downstream of the jet exit. Comparisons are made with experimental data and other approximate theories taken from the literature.
