A method is proposed for determining the degree of evaporation of a drop of solution under conditions where the evaporation is slow and the effect of diffusion within the drop can be neglected. An equation and criterion are derived which determine the evaporation of a drop of solution under these conditions. The range of criterial values corresponding to these conditions was determined experimentally.
