9 Phase Equilibria: Solubility Limit Introduction Solutions solid solutions, single phase Mixtures more than one phase Solubility Limit : Max concentration for which only a single phase solution occurs. Question: What is the solubility limit at 20 ° C ? Answer: 65 wt% sugar . If C o < 65 wt% sugar: syrup If C o > 65 wt% sugar: syrup + sugar. 65 Sucrose/Water Phase Diagram Pure Sugar Temperature (°C) 0 20 40 60 80 100 C o =Composition (wt% sugar) L (liquid solution i.e., syrup) Solubility Limit L (liquid) + S (solid sugar) 20 4 0 6 0 8 0 10 0 Pure Water Adapted from Fig. 9.1, Callister 7e.

10 Components : The elements or compounds which are present in the mixture (e.g., Al and Cu) Phases : The physically and chemically distinct material regions that result (e.g., a and b ). Aluminum- Copper Alloy Components and Phases a (darker phase) b (lighter phase) Adapted from chapter-opening photograph, Chapter 9, Callister 3e.
