Unformatted text preview: diagram from the literature? 3.) Explain the thermal couple effect. You should have an excellent reference for this information at your disposal, and no, it is not the internet. What is a k-type thermocouple and why was this one chosen for this lab? 4.) Read the introduction to phase diagrams from the ASM Handbook vol. 3 and review Callister Chapter 9. You should be very comfortable with the homework problems 9.1 – 9.25, and 9.27 – 9.45. Make sure you understand the 26 errors in the phase diagram in the paper, “Thermodynamically Improbable Phase Diagrams,” by Massalski. Read the derivation for Gibb’s Phase Rule. Read the lab manual. All of these documents are available through the e-learning site for this class. 5.) From the P-T unary phase diagram for bismuth explain in detail how you can determine that bismuth expands upon the liquid to solid transformation when cooling at 1 atm....
