Problem: A liquidus line separates which of the following combinations of phase fields?α and Liquid + αLiquid + α and α+ βα and α+ βLiquid and Liquid + α

FREE Expert Solution

There are three-phase regions in a binary isomorphous system.

When the liquid is at high temperature, we have Liquid + α (which is the liquid solution); intermediate phase depending on wt%A and wt%B; and solid phase below the melting point of A.
