        In the conversion of white cast Fe to gray, namely, decomposition of cementite to Fe and graphite, it is assumed that:  (1) The reaction occurs selectively at the surfaces of a number of singular points, as reaction nuclei; (2) the number of reaction nuclei diminishes as the reaction continues; and (3) the velocity of movement of a reaction zone in a fixed direction in a homogeneous crystal grain of the reactant does not vary at constant temperature.  On the basis of these assumptions, the following empirical equation was derived for the reaction velocity constant as a function of temperature, C, and Si contents:  K=5.8 x 1020 C4.0 Si4.3_ T1/2 e_40000/T.
