Unstable Region

Some articles on unstable region, region:

Spinodal Decomposition - Phase Diagram
... Thus, phase separation occurs whenever a material transitions into the unstable region of the phase diagram ... The boundary of the unstable region, sometimes referred to as the binodal or coexistence curve, is found by performing a common tangent construction of the free-energy ... Inside the binodal is a region called the spinodal, which is found by determining where the curvature of the free-energy curve is negative ...

Famous quotes containing the word region:

    For poetry was all written before time was, and whenever we are so finely organized that we can penetrate into that region where the air is music, we hear those primal warblings, and attempt to write them down, but we lose ever and anon a word, a verse, and substitute something of our own, and thus miswrite the poem.
