VK250 Lecture 03 1 Interatomic Bonding and Origin of Modulus Material properties depend on: (a) Type of atomic bonding (b) Three dimensional arrangements of atoms and molecules (crystal structure) (c) Atomic-scale defects in the crystal structure (d) Interactions of these defects with micron-scale features (“microstructure”). Structure–insensitive properties depend primarily on bonding and crystal structure. Not affected by processing E.g ., elastic modulus, density, melting temperature for metals & ceramics Structure–sensitive properties affected by defects and microstructure. Strongly influenced by details of composition and processing. Must add information on processing in material specifications E.g. , yield strength, ultimate tensile strength, elongation for metals. F ORCES ON ATOMS AND MOLECULES Work = Force x Distance Can be used to give a general expression for the force acting on a body: F x = " dU dx where x is distance and U is energy of a body Example: Gravitational potential energy: U = mgx Force due to gravity = - mg (positive force acts in - x direction) Atoms & molecules try to minimize energy and maximize entropy (disorder) Gibbs free energy is a thermodynamic quantity that incorporates both terms G = H - TS H = enthalpy
