The kinematics of vapor removal from a sphere has been investigated during film boiling in saturated liquid nitrogen. New experimental data are presented concerning the bubble frequency f and diameter D. In spite of film boiling conditions, the results may be correlated with the nucleate boiling relation, f(D)1/2 ≈ 17.5 (cm)1/2 sec, proposed by McFadden and Grassmann.
