Unformatted text preview: 4. The diameter is the length of the side divided by the number of atoms along one edge of the cube The Stiffness of an Interatomic Bond -Springs linked in series o Two springs linked end to end (in a series) stretch twice as much as one spring when the same force is combined o The combined spring is only half as stiff as the individual spring-Springs linked in parallel o Two springs side by side (parallel) stretch half as much as one spring when the same force is combined o The combined spring is twice as stiff as the individual spring-Interatomic bond stiffness is a property of the material and therefore does not change due to macroscopic dimensions. Stress, Strain, and Youngs Modulus -Youngs modulus is a property of a particular material independent of the shape or size of the object -It measures the stretchability of a solid material --In terms of atomic quantities,...
