Three evaporation models for single-component liquid drop
floating in a gaseous environment are compared: two of them
rely on the widely used assumption of constant (molar or mass)
density and yield an explicit formula for the evaporation rate,
while the third model relieves the constant density hypothesis
yielding an implicit form of the evaporation rate. The
comparison is made for a relative wide range of temperature
and pressure operating conditions and for three liquids: water,
n-octane and n-dodecane.
