Problem Set 5
1.
Thoroughly state and solve a problem analogous to the problem that was solved in class
where we used NaF as the material of interest. Be sure to include the references (not from
our books – use another source – e.g., “Smithells Metals Reference Book” referenced in
complete form or some other reference) for the material and vapor pressure data you
chose and a sketch of a fully labeled Pressure versus Temperature equilibrium phase
diagram. State and justify any assumptions you. You are the instructor, so include a
complete and understandable posed question and solution to your problem.
2.
At the normal boiling temperature of iron, T
b
= 3330K, the rate of change of the vapor
pressure of liquid iron with temperature is 3.72

atm/K. Calculate the molar latent
heat of boiling of iron at 3330 K.
