        At about 2,100, Ni will dissolve 6.42% C, corresponding approximately to the formula Ni3C.  Under the microscope a new constituent, evidently the carbide, was distinguished from the ground mass of Ni.  It was brown and resisted the etching solutions more than the Ni.  The behavior of the Ni-C alloys when heated resembled that of the Fe-C alloys, indicating that Ni and Fe form similar carbides.
