You encountered this subject for the first time yesterday when you came upon this thread. I've been dealing with this subject for years and so I think I understand it better than you.seasmith wrote:James, i''ve just told you the minimum droplet size on the previous page.jimmcginn wrote:

H2O doesn't become monomolecular (gaseous) unless and until it collectively flashes into steam when heated to it's boiling temperature/pressure (and/or when the pressure is lowered below it s boiling temperature/pressure.) To get a better understanding of the dynamics of H2O that underlie this and other strange behaviors the best I can do is point you to a paper I wrote that explicates the factors (including quantum dynamics) that underlie these behaviors:Mono and di- molecular H2O clusters are most easily dislodged from a surface because that action requires the least energy.
Not until the molecules recombine, upon cooling, as one of the four primary forms of Hexamers,
do the clusters achieve the rounded shape, bond strength and surface tension to become fairly stable droplets of water, at that pressure/temperature.
Look at the shapes of those few different molecular combinations, and you will see which ones would most readily 'stick out' from a surface, recombine in a cooling atmosphere or assume the Required shape of droplets.
Hydrogen Bonding As The Mechanism That Neutralizes H2O Polarity
I'm not saying you have to agree with what is stated in this paper. I'm just saying that unless and until you understand the thinking in this paper it will be impossible to comprehend why I am so sure your assertion about monomolecular (gaseous) H2O being the product of evaporation is impossible.
Also, I don't understand why you think your thinking in regard to hexamers is valid and/or relevant.
