On the possibility of diffusionally driven oscillations in two component gas bubbles in fluids
Abstract
The problem of an isolated, stationary, twocomponent gas bubble in a fluid is analyzed. The appropriate governing equations, and an approximate version of these equations, for this model system are reviewed. The qualitative differences in bubble dissolution behavior between single and twocomponent gas bubbles are elucidated. In particular, it is demonstrated that in the latter case the gas bubble radius may exhibit extrema as a function of time for certain values of the controlling parameters. The conditions under which these extrema may occur, and the maximum number of extrema which are permitted are elucidated.
