The point X, therefore, does not correspond with a eutectic point, but with a transition point.
Suppose, now, that the temperature is that of the transition point.
The temperature 96° is therefore called the transition point of sulphur.
There is, therefore, no transition point, and transformation of the crystalline forms can be observed only in one direction.
This temperature must therefore be below the transition point of this salt-pair (p. 314).
The triple point S-S-V is not precisely the same as the transition point, but is very nearly so.
For β- and γ-ferrite, the transition point is about 870, the γ- form being the stable modification above this temperature.
This diagram explains very clearly the phenomenon of the decomposition of a double salt at the transition point.
Coming into the household at this transition point, he was to make many such mistakes in his estimates.
By this method Cohen determined the transition point of grey and white tin (p. 42).
