1. 13.21 (a) What are the three main components of a whiteware ceramic such as porcelain? (b) What role does each component play in the forming and firing procedures? Solution (a) The three components of a whiteware ceramic are clay, quartz, and a flux. (b) With regard to the role that each component plays: Quartz acts as a filler material. Clay facilitates the forming operation since, when mixed with water, the mass may be made to become either hydroplastic or form a slip. Also, since clays melt over a range of temperatures, the shape of the piece being fired will be maintained. The flux facilitates the formation of a glass having a relatively low melting temperature.

and as the interparticle separation decreases. 13. . and. consequently. The drying shrinkage will thus be greater as this water is removed.2. more water will surround a given volume of particles. Solution The reason that drying shrinkage is greater for products having smaller clay particles is because there is more particle surface area.23 Cite one reason why drying shrinkage is greater for slip cast or hydroplastic products that have smaller clay particles.

14.6.22 Explain briefly why the tendency of a polymer to crystallize decreases with increasing molecular weight. . Solution The tendency of a polymer to crystallize decreases with increasing molecular weight because as the chains become longer it is more difficult for all regions along adjacent chains to align so as to produce the ordered atomic array.

drawing orients the polymer moleculaes. Again. Moreover. (d) Annealing an undeformed semicrystalline polymer produces an increase in its tensile strength because there would be an increase in crystallinity. Hence. interchain motions are thus inhibited. .15 Briefly explain how each of the following influences the tensile or yield strength of a semicrystalline polymer and why: (a) Molecular weight (b) Degree of crystallinity (c) Deformation by drawing (d) Annealing of an undeformed material Solution (a) The tensile strength of a semicrystalline polymer increases with increasing molecular weight. so the loading is increasingly along the main chains rather than between the chains. (b) Increasing the degree of crystallinity of a semicrystalline polymer leads to an enhancement of the tensile strength. the load is increwasingly carried by stronger intra-molecular primary bonds rather than weaker inter-molecular secondary bonds. This effect is due to the highly oriented chain structure that is produced by drawing. this is due to enhanced interchain bonding and forces. 15. (c) Deformation by drawing increases the tensile strength of a semicrystalline polymer. in response to applied stresses. This effect is explained by increased chain entanglements at higher molecular weights. which gives rise to higher interchain secondary bonding forces.7.

Of those polymers listed in Table 15.32 Of those polymers listed in Table 15. which polymer(s) would be best suited for use as ice cube trays? Why? Solution In order for a polymer to be suited for use as an ice cube tray it must have a glass-transition temperature below 0°C. .2.

This is not the case for condensation polymerization. producing the repeating unit. wherein there is a chemical reaction between two or more monomer species. the reactant species have the same chemical composition as the monomer species in the molecular chain. Solution For addition polymerization. such is not found for addition polymerization.9. There is often a low molecular weight by-product for condensation polymerization.

because the higher molecular weight sample would suffer many more entanglements than the lower molecular weight sample.

What would be the chain length of dislocations in 1000 mm3 of material? Solution The dislocation density is just the total dislocation length per unit volume of material (in this case per cubic millimeters). for a dislocation density of 1010 mm-2. the total length in 1000 mm3 of material having a density of 104 mm-2 is just ("# $ %%&' )("### !%%( ) ) "#* %% ) "# $ !% ) +.

The reason for this is that for most metals. the slip system will consist of the most densely packed crystallographic plane. (b) Do all metals have the same slip system? Why or why not?
