    A set of rate equations describing condensation of a gas is derived. These equations are solved numerically for several combinations of intermolecular bonding functions, temperature, initial saturation ratio, and condensation regime. The rates of condensation are found to decrease to a minimum...

    On the basis of the assumptions of statistical theories, nonlinear expressions for some of the fundamental equations of nucleation theory have been derived. The results apply to any of the statistical theories but are specifically applied to the modification of the original Lothe–Pound...

    In this paper we report that scaled nucleation theory (SNT) can describe moderately well the observed nucleation behavior of a significant number of refractory materials if a more appropriate value of a quantity commonly referred to as the excess surface entropy is used. With the availability of...

    A proper understanding of nucleation is crucial in several natural and industrial processes. However, accurate quantitative predictions of this phenomenon have not been possible. The most popular tool for calculating nucleation rates, classical nucleation theory (CNT), deviates by orders of...

    Airborne aerosol measurements in the central equatorial Pacific during PASE (Pacific Atmospheric Sulfur Experiment) revealed that cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) activated in marine boundary layer (MBL) clouds were dominated by entrainment from the free troposphere (FT). About 65% entered at...
