The limit line of supersaturation of slightly superheated nitrogen vapor as it expands in a two-dimensional nozzle has been determined. The results indicate that the degrees of supersaturation vary from 12.3 F at a condensation temperature of 109 R to 3.5 F at 126 R. These results are in agreement with work of other investigations with nitrogen gas initially at room temperature.
