Unformatted text preview: (1) I enjoy batches of hot cocoa in between hitting the slopes. I have a problem, however, I can't walk well in my wonderfully fancy ski boots. I need a ski boot designed to be flexible at room temperature but stiff out on the slopes. Can this be done? Explain how (what material type and property you're applying). (2) I need to develop a material capable of holding a solution with a unique combination of properties. My solution is slightly acidic with a pH of 2.5. I have also dissolved 3.7 volumes of carbon dioxide in the solution and need my container to be sturdy enough to contain the solvated gas and withstand the resultant internal pressures. The pressure ranges from 117 kPa at low temperatures (around 4 o C) and up to 380 kPa at room temperature (around 23 o C). My solution is going to be marketed as a commercial product so I will also need to ship these containers in various sizes (0.35 liters and 0.6 liters). Of the following list of materials my team of engineers has compiled, which one would be the best choice:...
