Abstract: A theoretical expression is derived for the secular part of the rate of apsidal motion in close binary systems in the framework of the dynamic theory of tides. Dynamic tides are treated as forced, linear, non-radial, isentropic oscillations of a gaseous star. An important limitation of the theory is that the rotation of the tidally distorted star is ignored.
