Consider 1.0 kg of austenite containing 1.15 wt% C, cooled to below 727 degrees Celcius (1341 degrees Farenheit).
a) What is the proeutectoid phase?
b) How many kilograms each of total ferrite and cementite form?
c) How many kilograms each of pearlite and the proeutectoid phase form?
d) Schematically sketch and label the resulting microstructure.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 24, 2021, 5:05 pm ad1c9bdddf
The solution determines the proeutectoid phase.
