The theoretically correct analytical solution is presented here to calculate the capillary pressure-saturation relationship from centrifuge experiments. This method eliminates iterative procedures or approximate solutions proposed by Hassler and Brunner for solving the capillary pressure-saturation equation. The solution presented is simple enough to be programmed and run on a personal computer. Results obtained using this theoretical solution are compared with those using approximate solutions.
