Abstract : An attempt was made to develop a theory about the mechanism of jet disintegration in order to derive mathematical relations for computing droplet sizes produced by insecticide spray equipment. The most important value for calculating the droplet sizes resulting from the disintegration of a liquid jet is the wave length originating in the liquid jet as a consequence of its instability.
