Density functional theory was studied for the nucleation of the gas-liquid transition. The kinetics of nucleation showed that the critical nucleus can be attached to one of the planes. It can bridge the two planes too. It was observed that the microscopic capillarity approximation provides a qualitative picture. Simulations of phase transitions were used for comparisons.
