CHAPTER 4 IMPERFECTIONS IN SOLIDS PROBLEM SOLUTIONS 4.1 In order to compute the fraction of atom sites that are vacant in lead at 600 K, we must employ Equation (4.1). As stated in the problem, Q v = 0.55 eV/atom. Thus, N V N = exp - Q V kT = exp - 0.55 eV/atom 8.62 x 10 - 5 eV/atom-K ( 29 (600 K) = 2.41 x 10 -5 4.2 Determination of the number of vacancies per cubic meter in gold at 900 ° C (1173 K) requires the utilization of Equations (4.1) and (4.2) as follows: N V = N exp - Q V kT = N A ρ Au A Au exp - Q V kT = 6.023 x 10 23 atoms/mol ( 29 19.32 g/ cm 3 ( 29 196.9 g/mol exp - 0.98 eV/ atom 8.62 x 10 - 5 eV/atom - K ( 29 (1173 K) = 3.65 x 10 18 cm -3 = 3.65 x 10 24 m -3 4.3 This problem calls for the computation of the energy for vacancy formation in silver. Upon examination of Equation (4.1), all parameters besides Q v are given except N , the total number of atomic sites. However, N is related to the density, ( ρ ), Avogadro's number ( N A ), and the atomic weight ( A ) according to Equation (4.2) as N = N A ρ Ag A Ag = 6.023 x 10 23 atoms/mol ( 29 10.49 g/cm 3 ( 29 107.87 g/mol 57

= 5.86 x 10 22 atoms/cm 3 = 5.86 x 10 28 atoms/m 3 Now, taking natural logarithms of both sides of Equation (4.1), and, after some algebraic manipulation - N N V ln kT = Q V = - 8.62 x 10 -5 eV/atom- K ( 29 (1073 K) ln 3.60 x 10 23 m - 3 5.86 x 10 28 m - 3 = 1.11 eV/atom 4.4 In this problem we are asked to cite which of the elements listed form with Cu the three possible solid solution types. For complete substitutional solubility the following criteria must be met: 1) the difference in atomic radii between Cu and the other element ( R% ) must be less than ±15%, 2) the crystal structures must be the same, 3) the electronegativities must be similar, and 4) the valences should be the same, or nearly the same. Below are tabulated, for the various elements, these criteria. Crystal Electro- Element R% Structure negativity Valence Cu FCC 2+ C -44 H -64 O -53 Ag +13 FCC 0 1+ Al +12 FCC -0.4 3+ Co -2 HCP -0.1 2+ Cr -2 BCC -0.3 3+ Fe -3 BCC -0.1 2+ Ni -3 FCC -0.1 2+ Pd +8 FCC +0.3 2+ Pt +9 FCC +0.3 2+ Zn +4 HCP -0.3 2+ 58
(a) Ni, Pd, and Pt meet all of the criteria and thus form substitutional solid solutions having complete solubility. (b) Ag, Al, Co, Cr, Fe, and Zn form substitutional solid solutions of incomplete solubility. All these metals have either BCC or HCP crystal structures, and/or the difference between their atomic radii and that for Cu are greater than ±15%, and/or have a valence different than 2+. (c) C, H, and O form interstitial solid solutions. These elements have atomic radii that are significantly smaller than the atomic radius of Cu. 4.5 In the drawing below is shown the atoms on the (100) face of an FCC unit cell; the interstitial site is at the center of the edge. The diameter of an atom that will just fit into this site (2 r ) is just the difference between the unit cell edge length ( a ) and the radii of the two host atoms that are located on either side of the site ( R ); that is 2r = a - 2R However, for FCC a is related to R according to Equation (3.1) as a = 2 R 2 ; therefore, solving for r gives r = a - 2R 2 = 2R 2 - 2R 2 = 0.41R A (100) face of a BCC unit cell is shown below.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
