POLYMER PHYSICS - Spring 2003 EMA 6165 - EXAM 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. Starting at the UCST, quenching a polymer-polymer solution to 5 degrees below UCST will have a larger domain size for polymer one than the same solution quenched 20 degrees below the UCST. 8. The partial of the Gibbs Free Energy with respect to mole fraction of solute defines the critical concentration for phase mixing of a polymer solution. 9. Spinodal phase separation processes are characterized by instantaneous precipitation with small fluctuations in the electron density initially. 10 . The tan delta of a polymer increases at the glass transition with increasing frequency of the input strain amplitude.

    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.
