Metr 446 Homework # 2 Due Tuesday, September 25 1. (20 pts) Calculate the growth rate of 10 and 50 µ m radius droplets due to i) condensation, and ii) coalescence. Assume a temperature of 5 o C, and a supersaturation of 0.3%. Also assume that the cloud consists of 100 5 µ m radius droplets per cm 3 , and that droplets that collide stick together. You can neglect the impact of condensational warming on the temperature profile surrounding the droplets, and you can also neglect the influence of inertial

(5 pts) How would the relative importance between these two growth mechanisms change if the impact of condensational warming on the temperature profile of the droplets were not neglected? 3. (5 pts) How would the relative importance between these two growth mechanisms change if the influence of inertial forces on drag were not neglected?...
