Abstract
It has been recently predicted that after bubble nucleation in an isothermal liquid-gas solution of constant volume and mass, the bubble would grow to a final, stable equilibrium size, and a method was given for predicting the final stress that the bubble would produce within the system. An experimental examination has been made of these conclusions using a water-nitrogen solution contained in a stainless steel vessel of constant volume. The evolution of a bubble to the final, stable equilibrium size was observed, and the predicted final stress was found to lie within the experimental uncertainty.
