This paper presents experimental results of simple compression of a soft rubber sphere in a very large range of forces attaining at 5000 N, presenting calculational results by a set of five equations presented in Part 1. The calculational values of approach, the radius of contact surface, and lateral expansion agree well with the experimental data in the large range of deformations. It is thus verified experimentally that the set of the equations (12), (13), (31), (40), and (43) in Part 1 is approximately valid in large deformations for rubber sphere. Program using a personal computer in calculating five quantities from the five nonlinear equations associated with the five quantities is noted.
