The kinetics of nucleation and diffusion controlled growth have been re-examined; this includes the most commonly assumed nucleation laws. The square size distributions and the time dependence for the average square size were obtained from previous solutions for nucleation and reaction controlled growth. The solutions for the size distributions and average particle size were also derived.
