POLYMER PHYSICS - Fall 2009 (EDGE) EMA 6165 - EXAM I 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) 6. Chain diffusion initiates with the yield stress. 7. The third moment of the molar mass is defined as the Number Average Molar Mass. 8. The root mean square end to end distance defines the average distance between chain ends for a Gaussian Chain. 9. Chain branches decreases the radius of gyration relative to linear chains of the same molar mass.

POLYMER PHYSICS - Fall 2009 (EDGE) EMA 6165 - EXAM I 5 SECTION III: Engineering Problem 20. Calculate the root mean square radius of gyration for poly(styrene-block-hydrogenated) where the styrene block has a molar mass of 50,000 g/mol and the isoprene block has a mass of 40,000 g/mol. Assume the blocks are composed of C-C bonds with a length of 0.15 nm, and that the characteristic ratio for the styrene block is 5.0 and 4.2 for the isoprene block.

    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.
