Size distribution and conceptual representation of oil droplets. Left: Gamma function of oil droplet size distribution for various coefficients of variation (CV). Right: Schematic representation of dispersed oil droplets in the control volume. The formulated shrinking oildroplet model is for a control volume containing dispersed oil droplets with their sizes following a gamma distribution function.
