The radial extensional and inextensional modes of vibration of an eccentric circular ring with a rectangular cross section have been studied by perturbation calculations and by measurements on five rings with various eccentricities. In agreement with the theory, only the k = 1 extensional mode was markedly non-degenerate. Formulae for calculating the frequencies are given.
