Unformatted text preview: x = kT ln x x eq . So when the defect solid is in equilibrium with pure B, there is no change in chemical potential in going from pure B to the solution. That occurs only when x = x eq . The chemical potential for x < x eq is obviously negative, meaning that the free energy decreases when a B atom is removed from pure B and placed into the solution....
