MAT 33 – Fall 2007 Homework #5 - Solutions Due: 10/15/07 1.) The diffusivity of copper atoms in the aluminum lattice is 7.5 x10 -13 m 2 /s at 600 o C and 2.50 x 10 -15 m 2 /s at 400 o C. Calculate the activation energy in kJ/mol for this case in this temperature. D (m 2 /s) T (K) 2.5 x 10 -15 673 7.5 x10 -13 873 Using D = D o exp - Q d RT we set up two simultaneous equations with Q d and D o as unknowns. Solving for Q d and eliminating D o in terms of temperatures T 1 and T 2 and D 1 and D 2 we get Q d = - R ln D 1 - ln D 2 1 T 1 - 1 T 2 = - 8.31J/mol-K [ ln (2.5x10 -15 ) – ln(7.5 x10 -13 ) ] [1/673 – 1/873] = 139,300 J/mol = 139.3kJ/mol 2.) For the diffusion data given below, answer the following questions; a.) Which process has the higher activation energy: i.) the diffusion of C in BCC Fe or ii.) the diffusion of Fe in BCC Fe. What is the graphical basis of your argument? b.) From the limited data here would you expect that the grain boundaries in a polycrystal constitute overall a faster or a slower diffusive path? Why?

### What students are saying

• 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.
