Abstract

Electrical forces play an important role in the scavenging of aerosol particle s by precipitation. Although, the effect of electric charge of the drop on its collection efficiency has been studied by several investigators both theoretically (e.g. Wang et al., 1978)and experimentally (e.g. Lai et al., 1978), the effect of an external electric field has not been studied thoroughly. We present here, some results of an experiment to study the effect of horizontal electric field on the collection efficiency of large water drops collecting aerosol particles of a few micrometer diameter
