Textbook Problem

From the information on the temperature stability of white and gray tin given in this chapter, which form would you expect to have the more ordered structure (have the smaller positional probability)?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The more ordered structure of tin from white and grey tin is to be identified.

Concept introduction: Tin (Sn) is soft crystalline chemical element. It is of two types, that is, white tin and gray tin. Gray tin is non metallic and has diamond cubic structure whereas white tin is metallic and has BCT structure.

To determine: The more ordered structure of tin from white and gray tin.

Explanation

Explanation

Gray tin is stable at low temperature (>13.2°C) whereas white tin is stable at normal temperature.

This means that, below 13.2°C , the value of ΔG will be positive and phase will change from SnwhiteSngray whereas for the temperature (>13
