Abstract

"Using kinetic theory and the thermodynamics of phase transitions, a method is derived for finding the growth rate and temperature increase of a droplet in water vapor which has been supersaturated by the expansion of a cloud chamber. Calculations are performed for a specific numerical example and compared to other work in this field"--Abstract, page [2].
