    A microscopic model of homogeneous nucleation is extended to apply to macroscopic clusters. The definition used for physical clusters is identical to that of Reiss, Katz, and Cohen, which has also been introduced by Lee, Barker, and Abraham. Practical approximations have been employed to obtain...
