1 Phase Diagrams Phase Diagrams ISSUES TO ADDRESS. .. • When we combine two elements. .. what equilibrium state do we get? • In particular, if we specify. .. --a composition (e.g., wt% Cu - wt% Ni), and --a temperature ( T ) then. .. How many phases do we get? What is the composition of each phase? How much of each phase do we get? Phase Diagrams Phase Diagrams Phase B Phase A Nickel atom Copper atom

2 Phase Phase Equilibria Equilibria : Solubility Limit : Solubility Limit Introduction – Solutions – solid solutions, single phase –M ix tu res – 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 40 60 80 100 Water Adapted from Fig. 9.1, Callister 7e. 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., α and β ). Aluminum- Copper Alloy Components and Phases Components and Phases α (darker phase) β (lighter phase) Adapted from chapter-opening photograph, Chapter 9, Callister 3e.

Hume – Rothery rules ) suggesting high mutual solubility. Simple solution system (e.g., Ni-Cu solution) • Ni and Cu are totally miscible in all proportions.

4 Unary Phase Diagram Unary Phase Diagram Phase Diagrams Phase Diagrams • Indicate phases as function of T , C o , and P . For this course: -binary systems: just 2 components. -independent variables: T and C o ( P = 1 atm is almost always used). Phase Diagram for Cu-Ni system Adapted from Fig. 9.3(a), Callister 7e. (Fig. 9.3(a) is adapted from Phase Diagrams of Binary Nickel Alloys , P.
