# Kelvin equation

The **Kelvin equation** is used to calculate the onset/occurrence of capillary condensation

Where *p* is the pressure, is the saturated vapour pressure, is the
liquid-gas surface tension for the bulk fluid, is the density of the bulk fluid, *R* is the molar gas constant, *T* is the temperature and *H* is the pore or capillary width.
