POLYMER PHYSICS - Fall 2009-Edge EMA 6165 - EXAM 2 2 Concepts. Answer the following statements with TRUE or FALSE . If the statement is false, state the reason(s). If you believe a statement can be made TRUE by a simple qualifier, then state it clearly. (Normally only a single word change is required.) (12 pts) 7. Spinodal decomposition represents nucleation and growth kinetics of phase segregation. 8. The osmotic pressure of the dissolved polymer chain scales inversely with the hydrodynamic volume of the chain. 9. The chi parameter is temperature independent. 10. The second virial coefficient equals zero at a chi value of 3/2.

POLYMER PHYSICS - Fall 2009-Edge EMA 6165 - EXAM 2 5 SECTION III: Engineering Problem 21. You are given and semi-interpenetrating network, i.e. a second polymeric network is formed within an existing network. You have to determine if one or both networks are elastomers. Describe the experiments that you would perform and the information you would need to answer the question. REMINDER: You must define the polymers and their differences to answer this question.
