This work embodies the results of the effect of the water soluble components on the radiative forcing of continental average aerosols, from aerosol data extracted from optical properties of aerosols and cloud (OPAC) 4.0 software package using FORTRAN program to model the effect of water soluble on optical depth, asymmetric parameter,  scattering and absorption coefficients at the spectral range of (0.25-0.80µm) and at eight relative humidities (0%,50%,70%,80%,90%,95%,98% & 99%). The concentration of water soluble was varied while concentrations of water insoluble and soot were kept constant. The optical parameters were used to compute numerically the radiative forcing using the concept of chylek and wong, the Angstrom exponent (α), turbidity (β) and Curvature .......

Keywords: Angstrom exponent, Curvature, Optical depth, Radiative forcing, Turbidity.
