Some articles on solution, homogeneous solution:
... of a small volume of non-uniform isotropic solid solution as follows or where = particle density (#/vol) is the free energy of the homogeneous solution ... Since we shall be concerned with testing the stability of an initially homogeneous solution to infinitesimal composition (or density) fluctuations, the gradients will also be infinitesimal and the second ... per unit volume (or free energy density) between the initial homogeneous solution and one with a composition given by is given by Note that both terms are quadratic in the amplitude, so the stability criterion is ...
Famous quotes containing the words solution and/or homogeneous:
“The Settlement ... is an experimental effort to aid in the solution of the social and industrial problems which are engendered by the modern conditions of life in a great city. It insists that these problems are not confined to any one portion of the city. It is an attempt to relieve, at the same time, the overaccumulation at one end of society and the destitution at the other ...”
