Abstract: Roots of the transcendental equations $ {j_l}(\alpha \lambda ){y_l}(\lambda ) = {j_l}(\lambda ){y_l}(\alpha \lambda )$ and

$\displaystyle {[x{j_l}(x)]'_{x = \alpha \eta }}{[x{y_l}(x)]'_{x = \eta }} = {[x{j_l}(x)]'_{x = \eta }}{[x{y_l}(x)]'_{x = \alpha \eta }}$

for the spherical Bessel functions of the first and second kind, $ {j_l}(z)$ and $ {y_l}(z)$, have been computed. The ranges for the parameter $ \alpha $, the order l and the root index n are: $ \alpha = 0.1(0.1)0.7$, $ l = 1(1)15$, $ n = 1(1)30$.
