Experimental data on bubble growth in superheated liquid nitrogen, bubble collapse in subcooled liquid nitrogen, and bubble growth with decreasing liquid nitrogen pressure are compared to the theoretical solutions obtained for noncryogens. Vapor bubbles in liquid nitrogen were found to behave quite similarly to vapor bubbles in noncryogens. This paper provides experimental data in two areas where additional theoretical work is needed: Bubble collapse in subcooled liquid, and bubble growth with decreasing pressure.
