Origin of eutectic
Examples from the Web for eutectic
In this case the freezing point may rise (as in the case of silver and zinc), and one of the eutectic points will be absent.
This is the eutectic point for iodine monochloride and iodine trichloride.
If the initial composition of the magma is represented by a point between the two eutectic points, orthoclase will separate first.
Or, in other cases, we may predict from the curve of melting-points that no eutectic alloy is possible.
At the eutectic point (15.6), these two solid phases could co-exist with the liquid phase.
