6.2 Binary Phase Diagrams Objectives From a phase diagram, determine phases present, phase compositions, phase amounts. As we saw in the previous section, a phase diagram is a map of the phases present as a function of composition and temperature. Phase diagrams are named by how many components they have, so a binary phase diagram is a phase diagram that has two components. For metallic phase diagrams, solid phases are usually named with Greek letters. So for example, a solid solution of two metals might be called the α phase. Figure 6.2.1 shows the binary phase diagram for copper and nickel. This is the simplest type of phase diagram, in which there is complete solubility of the two components in each other for all compositions; in other words, at low temperatures there is always only one phase, no matter what the composition. We will use this phase diagram to start learning about how to get information off of phase diagrams. Figure 6.2.1: Binary phase diagram for copper and nickel.

GI 6.2.2 For a mixture of 20 wt% Ni and 80 wt% Cu at 1300 C, what phases are present? ˚ GI 6.2.3 For a mixture of 50 wt% Ni and 50 wt% Cu at 1300 C, what phases are present? ˚ GI 6.2.4 For a mixture of 80 wt% Ni and 20 wt% Cu at 1300 C, what phases are present? ˚ GI 6.2.5 For each of the situations in GI 6.2.2-6.2.4, identify the amount of the phases present if you can. If you can not, explain why. GI 6.2.6 For each of the situations in questions 2-4, identify the compositions of the phases present if you can. If you can not, explain why.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
