Phase: a chemically and structurally homogeneous portion of a system Diamond and graphite: distinct solid phases of carbon Silica glass, quartz, and cristobalite: distinct phases of SiO 2 Number of components: the minimum number of chemical species needed to describe the composition of every phase Examples: Pure ice in pure water: two phases, one component In a onecomponent system, all phases have the same composition Ethanol in water: one phase, two components Dry air: one phase, many components 2 Lectures 23 & 24, spring 2010 ENGR 145, Chemistry of Materials Case Western Reserve University A map Areas: ranges of T and P for which a single phase is the equilibrium assemblage for the system Curves: combinations of T and P for which two phases coexist at equilibrium Triple point: unique values of T and P for which three phases coexist OGC Fig. 10.21 Review: OneComponent Phase Diagrams [OGC 10.6] 3 4 Lectures 23 & 24, spring 2010 ENGR 145, Chemistry of Materials Case Western Reserve University Coexistence of phases phases have equal Gibbs free energy ( G transformation = 0) determines the location of the curves and triple point(s) on onecomponent phase diagrams OGN Fig. 13.10 ( ) ( ) 2 2 H O H O s ( ) ( ) 2 2 H O H O s Review: Gibbs Free Energy in OneComponent Systems [OGN 13.7] G freezing >0 G freezing <0 = freezing freezing freezing G H T S G freezing = 0 Lectures 23 & 24, spring 2010 ENGR 145, Chemistry of Materials Case Western Reserve University Twocomponent (a.k.a....
