"Values of condensation coefficient, ß, were experimentally determined for water drops grown on cloud nuclei in atmospheric air samples. The measured quantities were supersaturation, final drop size (6 to 7.5 µm radius), and time to grow from near dry radius to final radius. The drops were grown in a vertical-flow thermal diffusion chamber, at supersaturations near 0.5 and 1.0%. The final drop sizes were large enough so that ß did not depend upon the size of the nucleus producing a given drop. The average value of ß was 0.025 with a standard deviation of about 0.01"--Abstract, page 2.
