2 MSE 2090: Introduction to Materials Science Chapter 9, Phase Diagrams Component - chemically recognizable species (Fe and C in carbon steel, H 2 O and Sucrose in sugar solution in water). A binary alloy contains two components, a ternary alloy – three, etc. Phase – a portion of a system that has uniform physical and chemical characteristics. Two distinct phases in a system have distinct physical and/or chemical characteristics (e.g. water and ice, water and oil) and are separated from each other by definite phase boundaries . A phase may contain one or more components.
