Gal and March have recently proposed a form of the single-particle kinetic energy density in density functional theory in terms of the one-body potential V(r) and the ground-state electron density n(r) generated thereby. Here, with a minor modification of the GM form, examples are given for (a) harmonic trapping and (b) a bare Coulomb potential. The case of the He atom is also considered, via the Chandrasekhar variational wave function. Finally, the use of the semiempirical fine-tuned Hartree-Fock n(r) for spherical atoms due to Cordero et al. is briefly referred to.
