Abstract:

During recent years, fogs obtained by mechanical or thermic dispersion of petroleum, coal and other oils, have found wide application in the creation of protective fog screens, in the fight against malaria bearing mosquitoes, etc. In this connection there arose a need for a simple method, one that is suitable under field conditions, of determining the degree of dispersion of such fogs furthermore, in view of the polydisperse nature of such fogs in addition to determination to the average size of the droplets, it is necessary to have an idea regarding the distribution of the droplet size.
