Abstract

The heterogeneous nucleation of supersaturated vapors on spherical aerosol like substrates was analyzed using density functional theory in statistical mechanisms. The classical nucleation theory was found to be inadequate in describing the condensation of droplets on very small particles at high supersaturations. The results were compared with those for the condensation of supersaturated vapors on submicrometer particles.
