18–16 The electrical resistivity of a beryllium alloy containing 5 at% of an alloying element is found to be 50 10 6 ohm cm at 400 C. Determine the contributions to resistivity due to temperature and due to impurities by finding the expected resis- tivity of pure beryllium at 400 C, the resistivity due to impurities, and the defect resistivity coefficient. What would be the electrical resistivity if the beryllium contained 10 at% of the alloying element at 200 C? Solution: From the data in Table 18–3, the resistivity at 400 C should be: Consequently the resistance due to impurities is: Since there are 5 at% impurities present, x 0.05, and the defect resistivity coefficient is: The resistivity at 200 C in an alloy containing 10 at% impurities is: 18–17 Is Equation 18–7 valid for the copper-zinc system? If so, calculate the defect resis- tivity coefficient for zinc in copper. (See Figure 18–11.) Solution: The conductivity and resistivity of pure copper are: For 10 wt% Zn in copper: From Figure 18–11(a), the conductivity of the Cu–10% Zn alloy at zero deformation is about 44% that of pure copper, or ¢ r 0.38 10 5 0.167 10 5 0.213 10 5 r 1 s 0.38 10 5 s 1 5.98 10 5 21 0.44 2 2.63 10 5 x Zn 1 1 x Zn 2 1 0.0975 21 1 0.0975 2 0.088 x Zn 1 10 65.38 2 1 10 65.38 2 1 90 63.54 2 0.0975 s 5.98 10 5 or r 1 s 0.167 10 5 ohm # cm 21.5 10 6 16.1 10 6 37.6 10 6 ohm # cm 10 6 1 0.1 21 1 0.1 2 1 4 10 6 2 3 1 1 0.025 21 200 25 2 4 178.9 r 200 r r d b 8.5 10 6 1 0.05 21 1 0.05 2 178.9 10 6 ohm # cm r d b x 1 1 x 2 or b r d x 1 1 x 2 r d 8.5 10 6 ohm # cm 50 10 6 41.5 10 6 r d r r t r d r t 1 4 10 6 2 3 1 1 0.025 21 400 25 2 4 41.5 10 6 # CHAPTER 18 Electronic Materials 199
