1 ECE331 Homework #7 Solution 1. This problem asks us to consider a specimen of ice I which is at -15 ° C and 10 atm pressure. (a) In order to determine the pressure at which melting occurs at this temperature, we move vertically at this temperature until we cross the Ice I -Liquid phase boundary of Figure 9.2. This occurs at approximately 100 atm; thus the pressure of the specimen must be raised from 10 to 570 atm. (b) In order to determine the pressure at which sublimation occurs at this temperature, we move vertically downward from 10 atm until we cross the Ice I -Vapor phase boundary of Figure 9.2 This intersection occurs at approximately 0.003 atm. Note: In some textbooks, this problem asks the pressures at -25 ° C. In this case, one would have to estimate the pressure values through an extrapolation of boundary line. The answers are roughly 1300 atm and 0.0015 atm, respectively. 2. Upon heating a lead-tin alloy of composition 30 wt% Sn-70 wt% Pb from 150 ° C and utilizing Figure 9.8: (a) the first liquid forms at the temperature at which a vertical line at this composition intersects the eutectic isotherm--i.e., at 183

### 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.
