Help determining phase diagram of Pb-Sb alloy

  1. May 16, 2017 #1

    I'm new to the forums and hope this is the correct area to post this question:

    I've Recently conducted a lab in class where we melted an alloy of Pb-Sb in order to determine its cooling curve. We did two different weight compositions (11.2% Sb) and (17.5% Sb) and recorded their temperatures upon heating them to an initial temperature of approximately 350 C. Additionally, our lab provides a series of crudely drawn cooling curves of other known weight compositions that were done as well.

    I'm aware these cooling curves serve as the liquidus line of my phase diagram but am confused as to what sort of methods I should approach to help construct the rest of my phase diagram with the known information that I have.

    Any help is appreciated,
