Liquid injection in cross ﬂows has applications in gas-turbine engines, afterburners and some rocket combustion chambers. Integral form of the conservation equations has been used to ﬁnd a cubic formula for the drop size in liquid sprays in cross ﬂows. Similar to the work on axial liquid sprays, the energy balance dictates that the initial kinetic energy of the gas and injected liquid be distributed into the ﬁnal surface tension energy, kinetic energy of the gas and droplets, and viscous dissipation incurred. Kinetic energy of the cross ﬂow is added to the energy balance.
