A volumetric method was used to measure the
evaporation loss of water drops larger than 0.3 mm
diameter. This method, which uses microliter syringes,
yields more accurate results than photographic
measurement of changes in drop diameter. Evaporation
data is presented for a range of drop sizes, air
temperature, humidity and air velocity conditions.
