November 16, 2009 4.3 This problem calls for the computation of the energy for vacancy formation in silver. Upon examination of Equation (4.1), all parameters besides Q v are given except N , the total number of atomic sites. However, N is related to the density, ( ρ ), Avogadro's number ( N A ), and the atomic weight ( A ) according to Equation (4.2) as N = N A ρ Ag A Ag = 6.023 x 10 23 atoms/mol ( 29 10.49 g/cm 3 ( 29 107.87 g/mol = 5.86 x 10 22 atoms/cm 3 = 5.86 x 10 28 atoms/m 3 Now, taking natural logarithms of both sides of Equation (4.1), and, after some algebraic manipulation Q V = - RT ln N V N = - 8.62 x 10 -5 eV/atom- K ( 29 (1073 K) ln 3.60 x 10 23 m - 3 5.86 x 10 28 m - 3 = 1.11 eV/atom 4.27 (a) The surface energy will be greater than the grain boundary energy since some atoms on one side of the boundary will bond to atoms on the other side--i.e., there will be fewer unsatisfied bonds along a grain boundary. (b) The small angle grain boundary energy is lower than for a high angle one because more atoms bond across the boundary for the small angle, and, thus, there are fewer unsatisfied bonds. 2

    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.
