Unformatted text preview: Solution to Problem Set #9 Problem 1. (a) Metal, M, undergoes an allotropic phase transformation between and at 1100 K. The low temperature phase is . A sample of M containing 10 8 cm-3 small oxide inclusions which act as effective nucleation sites even for small supercooling is rapidly quenched from 1200 K to 900 K. Estimate the grain size at the end of the transformation from to . Assume growth to be normal. (b) Alternatively, suppose that the sample containing the same number of oxide inclusions had been very slowly cooled from 1200 K to 900 K. What would be the grain size at the end of the transformation? DATA: enthalpy of transformation, H = 0.6 RT e molar volume of , V = 15 cm 3 mol-1 lattice parameter in , a o = 3.2 x 10-8 cm surface energy along - , = 40 erg cm-2 lattice diffusivities at 900 K, D L = 10-10 cm 2 s-1 diffusivity across - interface at 900 K, D I = 10-9 cm 2 s-1 Solution: (a) First calculate the homogeneous nucleation rate at 900 K The free energy change for transformation is: V T R V T T H G e v = = 6 ....
