### Abstract

The temporal response of an integrating cavity is examined and compared with the results of a Monte Carlo analysis. An important parameter in the temporal response is the average distance
*V* is the volume of the cavity, and *S*
is the surface area of the cavity. Finally, we consider an arbitrary cavity shape for which each flat face is tangent to a single inscribed sphere of diameter *D* (a curved surface is considered to be an infinite number of flat surfaces). We will prove that for such a cavity
