The relationship of the scattering coefficient and the aerosol fill factor is studied based on the calculated data for nonabsorptive aerosol with lognormal particle size distribution. The analytical approximation of this relationship is proposed which can be used for routine estimates with an error of 3–5% and for prediction of the examined characteristics for individual fraction or superposition of particle fractions. We find that condensation moistening and coagulation of particles result in the linear dependence of the scattering coefficient on aerosol mass concentration.
