Kinetics of binary condensation on the droplet growing in diffusion regime

A relaxation equation determining the regular tendency of the concentration of binary solution in the growing droplet to the stationary value, at which there is a self-similar solution to the problem of the condensation in a binary mixture, is derived. An analytical solution of the relaxation equation is obtained and it is demonstrated that the stationary value of concentration is achieved via the power law. The time interval that elapses from the emergence of the droplet until the diffusion regime of droplet growth and derived relaxation equation become effective is revealed. The stationary value of concentration is found for the model of ideal solution.
