MATERIALS 101 INTRODUCTION TO STRUCTURE AND PROPERTIES Winter 2010 Problem Set 1 Due: Tuesday, January 19, 8:00 AM 1. Bonding Why do ionically bonded materials have bonds with little directionality whereas covalent bonds can have high directionality? 2. Bonding a) Which of these objects are crystalline? And which is polycrystalline? b) What are the constituents of each object above. c) Rank the materials in terms of thermal expansion coefficient, from smallest to largest (hint: type ±coefficient of thermal expansion² into a web search engine) d) Find the thermal expansion coefficient for iron or steel (steel is an alloy of Fe and C). Consider a Fe (steel) component with a linear dimension of 1 m. What is the length change on heating from room temperature to 525 °C. 3. Density and Packing Pd (Palladium) has an FCC crystal structure, a density of 12.0 g cm -3 , and an atomic weight of 106.4 g mol -1 . a) Calculate the atomic radius of a Pd atom.
