In the case when the molecular dipoles of water suspended in the atmospheric vacuum satisfy the state of an ideal gas, their density [n.sub.0] under the normal atmospheric conditions used in the first approximation can be taken equal to the Loschmidt number numerically equal to [N.sub.L]=2.68 x [10.sup.25] [m.sup.-3] [10].
