Start your code here We have two different formulas for fractional crystallization. Please explain about when to use which formula?  1. F^(Di – 1) 2. 1/D * (1-F)^1/D-1

Fractional crystallization
Cl = Clo x F^(D-1)
Cl = concentration of element in liquid
Clo = initial conc. of that element in liquid
*The second formula that you have given is for ‘fractional melting’ not crystalization
