POLYMER PHYSICS - Spring 2001 EMA 6165 - EXAM I qualifier, then state it clearly. (12 pts) a. The shear modulus is indirectly proportional to the mole fraction of active chain segments of an ideal elastomer below the Tg. b. The freely rotating, freely jointed model underestimates the radius of gyration of polyethylene by a factor of 3 compared to the freely rotating model (Assume theta conditions). c. The n- average molar mass of a polymer is most accurately measured by light scattering.

    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.
