Abstract

A theory is developed to account for the variable nature of the specific heat C and the transport coefficients of thermal and mass diffusion, λ and D, for the quasi-steady equilibrium vaporization of a droplet in an unbounded, stagnant atmosphere. In the theory C, λ, and D are all temperature dependent whereas C and λ are further concentration weighted. Results from the present theory are found to agree within 15% with existing numerical solutions.
