Calculations have been carried out in order to determine the rate of evaporation of a liquid droplet surrounded by hot gases. The present study represents an extension of earlier work by Penner on evaporation rates for isothermal droplets. In particular, allowance was made for temperature gradients within the droplet by considering a droplet composed of an isothermal core and an isothermal shell. The results obtained in the present investigation were found to be in satisfactory agreement with the known data for evaporation of isothermal droplets, thus justifying calculations for isothermal droplets as a reasonable first approximation.
