Short summary
The article introduces a new method for determining the evaporation rates of small molecular clusters based on cluster concentration measurements. Evaporation rates cannot be measured directly or computed very accurately from any classical or quantum theory, so the presented method will give new understanding about molecular clusters. In addition, it can give some information about what happens to clusters during the measurement process.
