The trapping of foreign gas molecules (atoms) by growing aerosol particles as well as by already formed particles is considered. The trapping coefficients are obtained for both above-mentioned cases. The influence of size effect on the trapping coefficient is discussed.

Keywords: Aerosol particles; Impurity; Trapping coefficient
