Eutectoid vs. Eutectic
Difference Between Eutectoid and Eutectic
Describing the phase-change reaction of an alloy in which, on cooling, a single solid phase transforms into two other solid phases.
Describing the chemical composition or temperature of a mixture of substances that gives the lowest temperature at which the mixture becomes fully molten. A further requirement is that that temperature is lower than the melting point of any of the pure component substances.
An alloy of a composition that undergoes the eutectoid transformation.
(chemistry) Describing the thermodynamic equilibrium conditions where a liquid coexists with two solid phases.For a mixture with two components at a fixed pressure, the eutectic reaction can only happen at a fixed chemical composition and temperature, called the eutectic point.
A material that has the composition of a eutectic mixture or eutectic alloy
The temperature of the eutectic point
a mixture of substances having a minimum melting point
