The concentration of liquid aerosol particles subjected to high intensity sound has been measured as a function of the acoustic irradiation time. Experiments were performed at sound wave frequencies of 9.4 and 21 kHz on aerosols with a geometric mean particle diameter of 0.8 micron, a standard geometric deviation of 1.35, and initial particle concentrations in the range 1.0 E4 to 1.0 E7/cm3. The results are only partially consistent with the orthokinetic mechanism of agglomeration.
