MASC 310 Homework #11: Due 12/11 at 9am, by email or in person the exam review NANOSCALE MATERIALS NS.1 (a) How many cubes 1 nm on each side can be carved out of a cubic parent 1 m on each side? What is the surface area of one nanometer-sized cube? (b)If the parent cube consisted of an fcc structure with spheres 1 nm in diameter, what would be the collective surface area of all the individual spheres? NS.2 Briefly explain how the size or dimension of a material will affect (e.g. increase or decrease) the following materials properties. Cite your reasoning. (a) Stiffness of a 50 nm diameter metallic nanowire (or nanofiber) versus a macroscopic ~1mm diameter wire? (b) Strength of a 50 nm diameter ceramic nanowhisker or nanofiber versus a 10 micron diameter fiber? (c) Thermal conductivity of a 5nm diameter semiconductor (e.g. silicon) nanowire versus the bulk thermal conductivity of silicon? (d) Chemical reactivity of a 10nm diameter lithium nanoparticle versus a >1mm diameter sphere of aluminum?

    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.
