The chi parameter is directly proportional to the change in enthalpy of mixing. 8. The   freely   jointed,   freely   rotating   model   overestimates   the   radius   of   gyration   of  polyethylene by a factor of 2 compared to the freely rotating model 9. The mean square end-to-end distance of a polymer chain is directly proportional to strain
