- Results of Nucleation rate & subroutine
- Conclusions

- The nucleation is the process of formation of the critical size droplet (embryo) which has the ability to grow spontaneously till the phase transition.
- The nucleation rate is the rate of formation of the critical size droplets per unit volume per unit time.

- The vapor which can nucleate is the supersaturated vapor
- The work of formation consists from two term
- The critical size droplets have the ability to grow spontaneously
- The maximum work of formation equals the difference in the Helmholts free energy

- The binodal curve (solid dome)separates one-phase and two-phase states
- TC = critical temperature
- The spinodal curve (dashed dome) separates metastable and unstable states
- One true horizontal isotherm is shown

SPINODAL

LINE

- Solid black lines represent points of equilibrium two-phase coexistence
- c is the critical point
- b is the triple point
- When, say, gas is forced to cross lines ab or bc it is no longer the thermodynamically stable phase.
- The transition to the new stable phase is not instantaneous.

The work of formation

-The work of Formation is the work which is needed To form the critical size droplet

-The Helmholtz free energy before the formation

equals:

-The Helmholtz free energy after the formation

equals:

- The maximum work of formation consists from two terms: the bulk (volumetric) term and the surface term
- At critical size, There is an thermodynamic equilibrium

Kinetics Of Nucleation

Becker and Döring assumed that the clusters change its size by absorbing single molecule (1-cluster) or by emitting single molecule (reversible process)

The difference between the formation of n-size

cluster by absorbing single molecule into (n-1)-

size cluster and its destruction by emitting

single molecule equals:

At steady state

Then

-The n-size cluster can be formed by emitting single molecule from (n+1)-cluster and it can be destroyed by absorbing single molecule

-the total time-variation of concentration of –size

droplet is the difference between the two methods

At equilibrium

And

The Concentration Of n-size Droplet At

Equilibrium Equals

And

Then, we can reach to

●Gibbs’s exact formula:

● version 1: use bulk surface tension for

● Version 2: liquid droplet is incompressible,

- and
● Version 3: the vapor is an ideal gas

- and
- S =Pv /Pve (Supersaturation Ratio)

●SAFT…Statistical Associating Fluid Theory

● PC-SAFT….Perturbed-Chain Statistical

Associating Fluid Theory

●A is the reduced free helmholtz energy

●The association term is just for polar fluids

- the methanol and ethanol gases are not ideal.
- SAFT and PC-SAFT EOSs improve the binodals for methanol and ethanol at low temperature where the deviation from the experimental values approach zero.
- SAFT EOS gives better for the nucleation rates by one order of magnitude when compare with PC-SAFT EOS for methanol, that was clear in fitting value of nucleation rates for SAFT EOS was and PC-SAFT EOS was .
