Abstract: Given an $ m$-dimensional closed connected Riemannian manifold $ M$ smoothly isometrically immersed in an $ n$-dimensional Riemannian manifold $ N$, we estimate the diameter of $ M$ in terms of its mean curvature field integral under some geometric restrictions, and therefore generalize a recent work of P. M. Topping in the Euclidean case (Comment. Math. Helv., 83 (2008), 539-546).
