The results of measurements of the dependence of aerosol optical characteristics on the relative humidity of air in artificial condensation processes are analyzed. The dependences of the condensation growth factors on the dry particle size are calculated and their statistical analysis is performed. Regression relation between the measured optical parameters of condensation activity and the Hanel parameter for the aerosol volume concentration is obtained. The possibility of estimation of the Hanel parameter from values of the refractive index of dry and humidified particles is shown.
