Abstract

We use molecular dynamics simulation to describe a method that can be used to model liquid drop evaporation. For application, the liquid is taken to be water. Using the properties of the liquid and a Lennard-Jones potential, we derive dynamical equations, which are used to describe the gross dynamical behavior of the liquid-vapor molecular system. The resulting dynamical equations are solved numerically by a time stepping, numerical method. The evaporation of the liquid to the vapor phase is described.
