Abstract : This paper deals with the experimental determination of the rate of condensation around different types of soluble microscopic nuclei (NaCl, MgCl2, NH4Cl, CaCl2, P205, NH4NO3, (NH4)2SO4, etc.) and suspensoids such as camphor, silicon minerals, kaolin, lamp black, and calcium lime (CaO). The findings reveal that the above mentioned soluble nuclei and camphor powder are active artificial hygroscopic condensation nuclei and that lamp black, silicon aerosols, and kaolin are inactive nuclei around which no significant growth by condensation takes place in an unsaturated moist atmosphere.
