Abstract

Numerical solutions are obtained for transient response of water droplets to radiative heating. Results are presented for evaporation of polydispersed droplets in the solar radiation field. The evolution of the temperature and size of the droplet are determined. The results are discussed based on cloud droplet evaporation in the presence of absorbing inclusions.
