Calculations are presented for the dynamic stability of
vapor and air bubbles in superheated water. These calculations indicate that the values of the bubble radii for which the equilibrium is unstable are restricted to a finite range of radii whose values are governed by the temperature of the water and the initial air content in the bubble. Two theoretical solutions for the rate of growth of
these unstable bubbles are considered: (a) Solution of the
equation of motion of the bubble radius with the assumption
that the re is no beat diffusion across the bubble
wall; (b) solution which includes the effect of heat diffusion. The two solutions differ appreciably. These
two solutions are then compared with the experimental
data on the growth of the vapor bubbles in superheated
water. This comparison shows agreement with the solution
with the effect of heat diffusion included.https://authors.library.caltech.edu/records/z81kn-mhx48
