The Ostwald ripening of precipitates in Cu-Co alloys was investigated by electron microscopic observation. The variation of the mean particle radius r, and the distribution of relative particle sizes, f(r/r) , were obtained as functions of the aging time at 873K . The shape of f(r/r)was rather sharp and symmetrical around r = T in the early stage. It became broad with the aging and was similar, in the late stage, to the theoretical distribution of Ardell. It appeared that the shape of f(r/r) depends on the volume fraction but the growth rate of F scarcely depends on it. The rate of change of r was proportional to the cube root of the aging time from the early stage of aging.
