Abstract:

The article is devoted to the automation of measuring the proportions of aerosol particles, their concentration and the character of distribution according to size, this in experimental installations of the Institute of applied physics. To determine the microphysical character of fogs created in these, two types of apparatus were used. The first type consists of an aerosol trap lovushka in which the cloud particles are caught, counting on inert settling on a glass sheet with a special cover, after which these are photographed through a microscope, then calculated. The second type of apparatus concerns a photoelectric meter of aerosol particles.
