Abstract

An analytical analysis of multicomponent aerosol dynamics is presented. The analysis is applicable for linear as well as nonlinear condensation—evaporation rates and for any type of initial size—mass distribution. The effects of growth and removal are described, while the influence of particle coagulation is not considered. The analytical solution can be of use for describing the evolution of an initial mass distribution representing a multicomponent aerosol where each species grows-evaporates at a different rate.
