By use of the source theory approximate solutions are obtained for determining (a) the growth of a vapor bubble in pure liquids and binary liquid mixtures and (b) the growth and collapse of a noncondensing, nonsoluble-gas bubble in a pure liquid. These approximate results for case (a) exhibit good agreement with the existing exact solutions. Case (b) may be applied to the injection of helium gas into liquid oxygen, a problem of current importance in cryogenic rocket systems.
