## Nucleation and growth

The progress of solidification involves two distinct stages: nucleation and growth. Nucleation involves the appearance of very small particles, or nuclei of the solid (often consisting of only a few hundred atoms), which are capable of growing. During the growth stage these nuclei increase in size, which results in the disappearance of some (or all) of the parent phase. The transformation reaches completion if the growth of these new phase particles is allowed to proceed until the equilibrium fraction is reached.

### FAQ

What is Critical radius of nucleus?
Critical radius of nucleus is the minimum radius of a stable nucleus formed during solidification, assuming homogeneous nucleation conditions and is represented as r*=2*𝛾*Tm/(ΔHf*ΔT) or Critical radius of nucleus=2*Surface free energy*Melting temperature/(Latent heat of fusion*Undercooling value). Surface free energy is the energy to create solid–liquid phase boundary during the solidification, Melting temperature of the metal or alloy in kelvin, Undercooling value is the difference between the melting temperature and temperature under consideration (below melting temperature). It is also known as supercooling and Latent heat of fusion or enthalpy of solidification is the heat liberated during solidification. Enter the magnitude only. It is taken negative by default.
How to calculate Critical radius of nucleus?
