Name: MSE 230- REC 5&6 QUIZ # 6 1. Polymers An alternating copolymer has the following molecular weight distribution. Molecular weight range (g/mol) Number fraction (x i ) 0-10000 0.1 10000-20000 0.55 20000-30000 0.35 Calculate the number average molecular weight? 0.1 5000 + 0.55 15000 + 0.35 25000 = 17500 g/mol n M = × × × One of the polymers used for this copolymer is Polyethylene. Knowing that the degree of polymerization of the copolymer is 500, which of the following polymers is the other polymer? Polyethylene - m (repeating unit) = 28 g/mol Polypropylene - m (repeating unit) = 42 g/mol Polyvinyl chloride - m (repeating unit) = 62 g/mol PE UNKNOWN UNKNOWN UNKNOWN 17500 500 Alternating copolymer: Polyethylene (PE)/Unknown
