The rate of condensation of water vapor determines the operation of a number of engineering processes. For example, condensation plays a key role in applications such as air conditioning, electricity generation, refrigeration, reactor safety, aerospace, desalination, and some heat exchangers. Environmental and economic pressures are imposing a need to design increasingly efficient systems. As a result, we need to enhance our understanding on the physics of condensation in the presence of non-condensable gases.
