Abstract : The purpose of this report is to elaborate a specific theory of drop growth by condensation for use in cloud physics and various laboratory calculations related to cloud physics. It has been assimilated, for the most part, from existing literature, but in no one place has it received full exposition. This work therefore claims neither comprehensiveness, in treating all aspects and theories of drop growth, nor profundity in revealing new facets of the phenomena. (Author)
