Answer :

Here, N droplets form a bigger drop.


So, volume of bigger drop = sum of the volumes of the smaller drops.





Now, energy released is equal to the difference in the surface energies.



Now, if is the temperature drop, m is the mass and c is the specific heat then,




is negative as R>r.


Hence, the drop-in temperature is,
