When the partial pressure of the Mg above the melt equals the vapor pressure of the Mg in the melt, the system will reach equilibrium, where the rate that Mg evaporates and leaves the molten iron equals the rate that Mg condenses and returns to the molten iron.
For example, because heptane and the other solvents evaporate more slowly than Freon and methyl chloroform, using them as dispersion carriers may require longer oven times for drying.

Dispute: Halogen lightbulbs last longer than ordinary lightbulbs In all lightbulbs, the tungsten that makes up the glowing filament wire gradually evaporates, so the wire thins and the bulb burns out Halogen lightbulbs are filled with a gas of either iodine or bromine The force of the gas keeps the tungsten in a halogen bulb from evaporating as quickly.
