Definitions for incongruent melting
in·con·gru·ent melt·ing

Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word incongruent melting.


  1. Incongruent melting

    Incongruent melting occurs when a substance does not melt uniformly and decomposes into another substance. For example, potassium feldspar decomposes to leucite when it melts. The decomposition is not complete, however. Most of the feldspar does melt, a portion of it decomposes to leucite and some quartz is left over, since the chemical formulas of potassium feldspar and leucite differ by SiO2. Another mineral that melts incongruently is enstatite, which decomposes to forsterite. Enstatite does melt congruently between pressures of 2.5 and 5.5 kilobars.
