  • A description of phase transitions as recorded by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is given. A new numberN is defined asN=h′/h, whereh is the height of a transition peak for a mass of samplem and a heating rate †p andh′ is the height of the same peak for a mass2m or a heating rate2†p.N is theoretically derived in the case of isothermal and nonisothermal first order phase transitions and of a second order phase transition. The equivalence of mass and heating rate is proved. An example of… CONTINUE READING
