Rayleigh equation for the growth of a gas bubble under conditions of finite liquid volume

  • E. D. Kurtsman
Brief Communications


An equation is presented for the growth of a stationary spherical gas bubble in a finite spherical liquid volume, for which the familiar Rayleigh equation is the zero-order approximation. The results of computer solutions of the derived equation and the Rayleigh equation are compared.
