The integro‐differential equation for the growth of a vapor bubble in a superheated liquid is formulated and discussed. It is shown that two distinct time domains exist: one, of the order of 10-4 second, during which the effect of the hydrodynamic forces may be an important factor in the growth of the bubble, and another, during which this effect is unimportant. An integral equation is formulated for the latter domain. A solution of the problem, in closed form, valid for the entire interval of interest is presented; it agrees very well with experimental data for various superheats.
