Abstract It is known that the evaporation rate is equal to the rate of phase transition only when the evaporating surface is small or when a condensing surface is placed very close to the evaporating surface. This paper describes a quantitative theory which predicts the rate of evaporation from a finite surface into a vacuum in the absence of such a condenser or other nearby surfaces. The predictions of the theory for finite surfaces have been confirmed by comparison with experimental data reported in the literature and, in the limiting case of an infinite surface, with the predictions of a previous theoretical study.
