The results of the analysis of the first four energy levels of the ground-state rotational bands of even-even nuclei from 6C8 to 56Ba90 on the basis of the revolving-cluster model are reported. Values of the nucleon number of the revolving cluster are assigned on the basis in part of the shell model and in part of the expectation that the corresponding values of the radius of revolution would change only slightly from one energy level to an adjacent level or from one nucleus to an adjacent nucleus. The values of the radius of revolution are found to change gradually from about 5 to 6 fm for the lighter nuclei to 7 to 8 fm for the heavier nuclei in the sequence studied.
