Ductile to Brittle Transformations in materials
In metals, body centered cubic metals lose most of the fracture resistance and ductility is lowered to below the
brittle to ductile transition temperature. This transition temperature is the lowest temperatu

1.) At 200 C, how many different equilibrium phases may exist throughout the entire
composition range in the Cu-Zn system?
2.) What is the difference between pennies minted from 1959 up to 1982, and those after
1982? Be specific.
1. You should already have a Sn-Bi phase diagram with points plotted on it. Attach it to
2. How do your points differ from those on the phase diagram? Why?
3. Briefly explain the thermocouple (Seebeck) effect.
