A model of the process of light–induced deformations of large absorbing water drops has been constructed. The role of hydrodynamical mechanism as well as of the effect of phase explosion of overheated liquid in fragmentation of the particles has been analyzed. An experimental data on the dependence of the size of fragments of the drops on the rate of the light energy influx into the material of the particle has been interpreted.
