Fig. 9.7 Stability diagram for reactive metal M in an alloy with inert metal M

The lowest line is unalloyed M. As the mole fraction of M in the alloy decreases, the lines shift upward but remain parallel. As an example of the use of the diagram, consider an alloy with mole fraction of M equal to xMi. If an oxygen pressure is imposed on the M-P alloy and the system temperature is fixed, the equilibrium mole fraction of M is reduced to xMf. Some of the M in the initial alloy becomes oxidized and converted to MO2 until the required reduction in the concentration of M in solution is achieved.

Do we really want the one thing that gives us its resources unconditionally to suffer even more than it is suffering now? Nature, is a part of our being from the earliest human days. We respect Nature and it gives us its bounty, but in the recent past greedy money hungry corporations have made us all so destructive, so wasteful.
