# Is Pb and Sn solid solution?

## Is Pb and Sn solid solution?

Pb-Sn alloys are used as common solders. phase is a solid solution of Sn with Pb as the solute.

## What is the phase present in Pb?

This point, being common to both the curves, represent the condition under which three phases solid lead, solid silver and melt (solution) are in equilibrium.

What is Pb and Sn?

Lead (Pb) has an atomic number of 82 and a high density. Its crystal structure is face-centered cubic (fcc). At 50 °C, 2% Sn is soluble in Pb and at the eutectic temperature, 183 °C, the maximum solubility of Sn in α-Pb is 19%. The melting point of pure Pb is 327.46 °C.

What is the maximum solid solubility of Sn in Pb?

The maximum solid solubility of tin in lead occurs at the eutectic temperature (183 C) and the a-phase at this temperature has the composition Pb-19.2 wt % Sn.

### What is the eutectic composition of Sn wt Sn )?

Thus, the eutectic composition of Tin (Sn) is (100 – 39.89) % = 60.11%.

### What is the eutectic composition of Pb in Pb Sn system?

In the Pb-Sn system, the fraction of total a phase is 3 times the fraction of b phase at eutectic temperature of 182°C, Pb with 19% Sn dissolved in it, Sn with 2.5% Pb dissolved in it, and liquid is in equilibrium.

What is the solubility limit of Pb in Sn in weight Sn?

2.5% Pb
(b) The maximum solubility of lead in tin, which is found from the tin-rich side of the phase diagram, occurs at the cutectic temperature of 183°C and is 97.5% Sn or 2.5% Pb. are an exception to this rule since they transform from a liquid to a solid at a constant temperature (i.e., the eutectic temperature).

What is the eutectic composition of Pb in Pb-Sn system?

#### What is the eutectic composition and eutectic temperature for Pb-Sn?

b) What is the eutectic composition and the eutectic temperature for Pb-Sn? ANS: As shown on the attached phase diagram the eutectic composition is 62%Sn and 38%Pb and the eutectic temperature is 183°C.

#### What are the eutectic temperature and eutectic composition of Pb Sn system?

At what temperature does the Sn have the maximum solubility in Pb and what is the maximum solubility at this temperature?

The solubility of tin in lead at 100°C, therefore, is 6%. (b) The maximum solubility of lead in tin, which is found from the tin-rich side of the phase diagram, occurs at the cutectic temperature of 183°C and is 97.5% Sn or 2.5% Pb.
