A general form of material balance equations to be used to calculate quasi-binary sections of multi-component phase diagrams is derived here. When this general equation is reduced to ternary systems, it coincides with those, given in the Thermo-Calc manual. For a k-component system, altogether only (k-2) such independent equations should be written from the list of k(k-1)/2 possible equations.
