Assessment Performance Criteria Chapter 5 – Polymers and Composites Students will be able to: 5.1 differentiate polymers from other classes of engineering materials based on their macromolecular nature. 5.2 recognize material-selection opportunities for polymers because of their low density, formability, cost, and other differentiating properties. 5.3 define and differentiate between the various types of secondary bonding 5.4 cite by what order of magnitude primary bonds are stronger than secondary bonds. 5.5 describe the role of primary and secondary bonding in polymeric solids and how secondary intermolecular bonding accounts for the relatively low melting temperature of most polymers. 5.6 list the major properties of polymers which make them both attractive and unattractive
