TOPIC 6 SOLID SOLUTIONS REVIEW OF IDEAL MIXING Recall that for an ideal mixture we have found the following relationships AQdealmxx RTZXx lnXx Asidealmxx RZXx lnXx Adeeazm AdeEalmxx 0 ANOTHER APPROACH

that the following equality holds In N lnNN 71N7 21 lnN lnN71lnNr 2ln1 N Zlny H Now if N is suf ciently large we can replace the 39on with an integral so we have N In N Iln ydy I Now we need to

but jadeite will be a component of a pyroxene solid solution and albite will be a component of plagioclase solid solution We therefore cannot assume that their activities are unity we must calculate them For plagioclase we can assume ideal molecular mixing ie nan m Kalb For pyroxene we use an ideal ionic mixing model Suppose we are given the following analysis of the pyroxene determined by
