That is, we shall first of all examine the freezing point curves of ternary systems.
At the last-mentioned point, the ternary salt with 8H2O is formed.
An example of a ternary system yielding such a boundary surface is that consisting of phenol, water, and acetone.
Note the ternary movement of this song, and see Versification, p. lxxiii.
When two combinations are observed, they must be presumed to be a binary and a ternary.
In this figure ak′b is an isothermal, ak″ is the curve for the binary system, and K is the ternary critical point.
Because they also are not perceptible; the ternary aggregates, the so-called trasarenus, constituting the minima perceptibilia.
These lines correspond with the ternary eutectic curves k3K1 and k4K2 in Fig. 97.
This is shown by the isotherm for -4.5, which surrounds the point Q, the melting point of the ternary salt.
In the other case, either one or both solid phases are ternary compounds.
ternary ter·na·ry (tûr'nə-rē)
Composed of three or arranged in threes, as a chemical compound containing three elements. n.
A group of three.
A description of an operator taking three arguments. The only common example is C's ?: operator which is used in the form "CONDITION ? EXP1 : EXP2" and returns EXP1 if CONDITION is true else EXP2. Haskell has a similar "if CONDITION then EXP1 else EXP2" operator.
