Growth would stop at this point, if it were not for the fact that material in the stronger solution further away diffuses toward the crystal faces, strengthening the solution there and thus providing more material for crystal growth. T h e rate of diffusion of dissolved substance toward the crystal is evidently an important factor limiting the rate of growth. Its effect is somewhat similar to that of the diffusion of heat away from the crystal. In fact, in the growth of crystals from solutions, both these processes take place simultaneously—heat is diffusing away from the crystal, and material for growth is diffusing toward it.
The sense that it contains least free energy)—the one found in sucrose crystals; but molecules bristling with O-H groups may get linked with neighboring molecules in all sorts of ways, and most of these are not the arrangements required in the sucrose crystal. T h e chances are that the molecules get stuck in wrong arrangements. They can find their way to the right arrangement if given time at an appropriate temperature, especially if already 30 G R O W T H A N D FORM formed sucrose crystals are put in as "seeds" on which other molecules can settle; but otherwise all sorts of wrong arrangements persist.
W H Y C R Y S T A L S E X I S T 27 What, then, is the origin of the forces which make oxygen gas condense to a liquid at low temperatures and freeze to a crystalline solid at still lower temperatures? T h e forces are evidently comparatively weak, for a very low temperature (—218°C) is required to make crystalline oxygen, but forces there must be (if our conception that cohesion is due to attractive forces is FIG. 8.

Another example of the same sort—and this time a substance which exists in the crystalline state at ordinary temperatures—is sulfur, which is found as yellow crystals of the shape shown in Fig.
