1/4 page / ECE331 Homework #7 Solution (Due Monday, March 6, 2006) 1. Callister, 5.3 (a) With vacancy diffusion, atomic motion is from one lattice site to an adjacent vacancy. Self-diffusion and the diffusion of substitutional impurities proceed via this mechanism. On the other hand, atomic motion is from interstitial site to adjacent interstitial site for the interstitial diffusion mechanism. (b) Interstitial diffusion is normally more rapid than vacancy diffusion because: (1) interstitial atoms, being smaller, are more mobile; and (2) the probability of an empty adjacent interstitial site is greater than for a vacancy adjacent to a host (or substitutional impurity) atom. 2. Callister, 5.7 We are asked to determine the position at which the nitrogen concentration is 2 kg/m 3 . This problem is solved by using Equation (5.3) in the form J = D C A C B x A x B If we take C A to be the point at which the concentration of nitrogen is 4 kg/m 3 , then it becomes necessary to solve for x B , as x B = x A + D C A C B J Assume
