On the Algorithm of Calculation of the Equilibrium Gas-Phase Concentration at the Particle Surface in the Kinetic Models of Aerosol Dynamics
The paper is dedicated to the description of the algorithm of calculation of the equilibrium gas-phase concentration at the surface of the aerosol particle – a parameter, which defines the rate of mass transport between the gas and aerosol phases in the kinetic models of atmospheric aerosol dynamics. Some problems concerning deducing of the surface equilibrium gas-phase concentrations from thermodynamic equilibrium aerosol models are discussed. It is shown that computational algorithm should be split in two steps; the sought quantity is defined on the second step, after ion concentration calculation.
