Problem set: Constructing metamorphic phase diagrams using phase equilibria and the Clausius-Clapeyron equation part of Cutting Edge:Petrology:Teaching Examples
In this problem set students construct a P-T phase diagram for the aluminosilicate polymorphs based on experimental phase equilibria and application of the Clausius-Clapeyron equation. The problem set uses unit cell volume, molar entropy, and phase equilibrium data culled from the primary literature. It leads students through the exercise in step-by-step fashion starting with a brief explanation of the Clausius-Clapeyron equation.
