	%X In this research, the changes in bubbles diameter and 
number that may occur due to the change in heat flux of pure water 
during pool boiling process. For this purpose, test equipment was 
designed and developed to collect test data. The bubbles were graded 
using Caliper Screen software. To calculate the growth and 
nucleation rates of bubbles under different fluxes, population balance 
model was employed. The results show that the increase in heat flux 
from q=20 kw/m2 to q= 102 kw/m2 raised the growth and nucleation 
rates of bubbles.
