Chapter 9: Phase Diagrams ISSUES TO ADDRESS. .. When we combine two elements. .. what is the resulting equilibrium state? In particular, if we specify. .. -- the composition (e.g., wt% Cu - wt% Ni), and -- the temperature ( T ) then. .. How many phases form? What is the composition of each phase? What is the amount of each phase? Phase B Phase A Chapter 9 - 1 Nickel atom Copper atom
