Abstract : The hydrodynamic and electrostatic forces on cloud droplets have been computed. 'Exact' solutions to the two body problems of hydrodynamics and electrostatics are used to give the forces between cloud droplets of arbitrary size falling freely in an arbitrary uniform electrostatic field. The RAND Corporation's Johnniac and IBM-704 were used for the numerical calculations. (Author)
