The torsional oscillator technique is used to study the super fluidity of helium in porous silica gel as a function of temperature and coverage. Although the pore diameter of the silica gel is similar to that of the Vycor glass used in previous studies, remarkable differences in the super fluid behavior are observed near the transition temperature.
