An exact solution is presented which describes the time-dependent deformation of a nearly spherical drop suspended on the rotation axis of a more dense rotating viscous fluid. The solution is demonstrated to be similar, though not identical, to that derived from the commonly invoked assumption that the external flow field is purely extensional.
