a. Give a thermodynamic interpretation of the terms break and halt
b. Sketch an example of a phase diagram for a binary mixture of compounds A and B, which are solids at room temperature. The melting point of A is higher than that of B. The eutectic point is at 80 mol %A. Compound AB melts incongruently.
a) Break will appear as changes slope in temperature time curve and when temperatures stops changing it will create a halt.
