Determination of Surface Energies of Crystals from Equilibrium States
There is as yet no unanimity on the relation between surface energy and growth rate of a crystal face. It may be that, if the relation between surface energy and habit could be established, the measurement or calculation of surface energies would be facilitated for faces in contact with solution, melt, or vapor.
