A 1 kg alloy of composition 50 wt% Sn-50 wt% Pb is held at 184 C for a long time to ensure stable phase equilibrium resulting in a mixture of a + Liquid at 184 C. If the only goal is to obtain an ALL solid alloy without changing the temperature of 184 C we have two options: add Pb or add Sn to the 1 kg alloy. By examining the solidus composition (s) at 184 C it is clear that two compositions can meet the ALL solid criterion at 184 C: either the 97.5 wt% Sn-2.5 wt% Pb W solid solution) OR the 19 wt% Sn-81 wt% Pb (a-solid solution). By calculating the grams ofPb or Sn needed in each of these two cases comment on which would be a better option (as an extra consideration realize that Pb price ranges from $ 1.0 to 1.25 per pound and Sn ranges from $12 to 15 per pound).

    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.
