ME 141A Intro to Nanotechnology Due: 2/23/2008 HOMEWORK #3 SOLUTIONS 4.10) Rank the following bonds from strongest to weakest and provide the bong energy: the bond between hydrogen and oxygen in a water molecule, the bond between sodium and chlride in the NaCl molecule, the bond between atoms in a metl, the van der Waals bond between adjacent atoms. NaCl= 8.3 x 10 -19 J; Oxygen-hydrogen in a water molecule = 7.6 x 10 -19 J; atoms in a metal 1.6 x 10 -19 to 4.8 x 10 -19 J; van der Waals between hydrogen atoms = -1.4 x 10 -22 J. 4.13) A given crystal structure (such as NaCl) can be represented as consisting of planes of atoms, as shown in Figure 4.25. A beam of x-rays can be reflected off of the crystal, where some of the beam penetrates through the atoms of the upper layer and strikes the atoms in the lower plane. A pair of incident x-rays from an x-ray source are reflected from the crystal as shown and into an x-ray detector. a) How much farther does the beam reflected from the lower plane travel from source to detector than the one reflected from the upper plane?

    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.
