Chapter 9 - 1 ISSUES TO ADDRESS. .. • When we combine two elements. .. what equilibrium state do we get? • In particular, if we specify. .. --a composition (e.g., wt% Cu - wt% Ni), and --a temperature ( T ) then. .. How many phases do we get? What is the composition of each phase? How much of each phase do we get? Chapter 9: Phase Diagrams Phase B Phase A Nickel atom Copper atom

Chapter 9 - 2 Phase Equilibria: Solubility Limit Introduction – Solutions – solid solutions, single phase – Mixtures – more than one phase Solubility Limit : Max concentration for which only a single phase solution occurs. Question: What is the solubility limit at 20°C ? Answer: 65 wt% sugar . If C o < 65 wt% sugar: syrup If C o > 65 wt% sugar: syrup + sugar. 65 Sucrose/Water Phase Diagram Pure Sugar Temperature (°C) 0 20 40 60 80 100 C o =Composition (wt% sugar) L (liquid solution i.e., syrup) Solubility Limit L (liquid) + S (solid sugar) 20 40 60 80 100 Water Adapted from Fig. 9.1, Callister 7e.

Chapter 9 - 3 Components : The elements or compounds which are present in the mixture (e.g., Al and Cu) Phases : The physically and chemically distinct material regions that result (e.g., α and β ). Aluminum- Copper Alloy Components and Phases α (darker phase) β (lighter phase) Adapted from chapter-opening photograph, Chapter 9, Callister 3e. A phase maybe defined as a homogeneous portion of a system that has uniform physical and chemical characteristics.

Chapter 9 - 5 Phase Equilibrium Equilibrium: minimum energy state for a given T, P, and composition (i.e. equilibrium state will persist indefinitely for a fixed T, P and composition). Phase Equilibrium: If there is more than 1 phase present, phase characteristics will stay constant over time. Phase diagrams tell us about equilibrium phases as a function of T, P and composition (here, we’ll always keep P constant for simplicity).

Chapter 9 - 7 Phase Equilibria 0.1278 1.8 FCC Cu 0.1246 1.9 FCC Ni r (nm) electroneg Crystal Structure • Both have the same crystal structure (FCC) and have similar electronegativities and atomic radii ( W. Hume – Rothery rules ) suggesting high mutual solubility. Simple solution system (e.g., Ni-Cu solution) • Ni and Cu are totally miscible in all proportions.
