Lifetime of a Nanodroplet: Kinetic Effects and Regime Transitions.

Summary of "Lifetime of a Nanodroplet: Kinetic Effects and Regime Transitions."

A transition from a d^{2} to a d law is observed in molecular dynamics (MD) simulations when the diameter (d) of an evaporating droplet reduces to the order of the vapor's mean free path; this cannot be explained by classical theory. This Letter shows that the d law can be predicted within the Navier-Stokes-Fourier (NSF) paradigm if a temperature-jump boundary condition derived from kinetic theory is utilized. The results from this model agree with those from MD in terms of the total lifetime, droplet radius, and temperature, while the classical d^{2} law underpredicts the lifetime of the droplet by a factor of 2. Theories beyond NSF are also employed in order to investigate vapor rarefaction effects within the Knudsen layer adjacent to the interface.

An Act prohibiting a health plan from establishing lifetime limits or annual limits on the dollar value of benefits for any participant or beneficiary after January 1, 2014. It permits a restricted annual limit for plan years beginning prior to January 1, 2014. It provides that a health plan shall not be prevented from placing annual or lifetime per-beneficiary limits on covered benefits. The Act sets up a new competitive health insurance market giving tens of millions of Americans the same choices of insurance that members of Congress will have. It aims to bring greater accountability to health care and to control cost of health insurance premiums.
