Abstract

Molecular mechanisms of evaporation and condensation at free liquid surfaces under the vapor-liquid equilibrium are investigated with molecular dynamics computer simulations for argon and methanol. Vapor molecules colliding with the surface are in the condition of almost complete capture for both fluids, but molecular exchanges strongly affect the evaporation-condensation rate in the case of methanol.
