AOS 145 Homework #3 Winter 2017 – Li Due 2/8/2017 Name:____________________________ ID: ________________________________ 2 QUESTIONS (16 points total) 1. An air mass containing dry particles of pure ammonium sulfate ((NH 4 ) 2 SO 4 ) is lifted in the atmosphere to a level where the environment saturation ratio is 1.002. The particles have the following size distribution: a) [4 point] Above which dry diameter will the particles be activated and grow? In solution ammonium sulfate dissociates into three ions. The molecular weight and density of ammonium sulfate is 132 g mol -1 and 1.77 g cm -3 , respectively. Assume temperature T = 273 K in your calculation. b) [2 point] Discuss qualitatively how the size distribution will look like after some time has elapsed. c) [2 point] Discuss qualitatively what will happen if, after 5 minutes, the environment saturation drops to 1.001. Hints: A dry diameter can be calculated from n s or vice versa (see the last slide from Lecture 6). Once the particle takes up water, its diameter will change which follows the Köhler curve.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
