Abstract : The primary objectives of this work were to investigate the operating conditions of the Aitken nucleus counter and to elucidate the basic mechanisms of condensation with a view to applications in cloud physics. The apparatus used in the study consisted of a Wilson-type cloud chamber in which the condensation phenomena could be observed by either high speed camera or light extinction measurements. In this manner rates of condensation were noted and also the effect of nucleation by solid particulates of reacting gases such as ammonia and hydrochloric acid was studied. (Author)
