"The effect which a growing droplet has on the supersaturated atmosphere surrounding it is analyzed by assuming a macroscopic diffusional growth mechanism involving both heat and vapor. The problem is solved, for cloud-chamber conditions, first for very short times assuming a fixed radius, and then for longer times assuming the establishment of "quasi" steady-state conditions. Knowledge of the way in which droplet growth affects supersaturation is important in the evaluation of nucleation rates"--Abstract, page ii.
