Plastic strain
What did Taveau invent?
Likely to have invented First dental amalgam in 1816 in france
Atoms at the surface of a SOLID have a (higher or lower) energy state than those within the material due to non-uniform forces acting upon them. this condition leads to a force called what?
HigherSurface Energy

What 2 things affect creep of an amalgam
Microstructure and manipulation

atom sizevalence chemical affinitycrystal structure
What are the 4 types of alloys
Solid solutions, Intermetallic, Eutectic, and Peritectic
the measure of heat transferred through a material by conductive flow is?
Thermal Conductivitykappa = J * Change in X/ Change in TempJ is heat fluxUnits cal/cm*s*deg C, W/m*K
True or false Hardness Comparisons of materials with similar compostions is acceptable.
True, however comparisons across material types are not valid
Inlay gold alloy contains what elements
Au, Cu, Ag, Pt and/or Pd
the property related to the rigidity of a material under stress is called
Modulus of Elasticityalso called Youngs Modulus and its the ratio of Engineering Stress to Strain and is denoted by EE = sigma/funny looking Eequivalent to stress/strainUnits same as stress cause funny looking E is deminsionless
Differnces that can lead to corrosion include
Chemical compostion and EMFMetallic ion concentration in an elctrolytedepolarization, due to different concentration of the electrolyte in gasseous oxygen
4 types of viscous materials are
Newtonian - shear stress proportional to shear strain so viscosity is constantPlastic - initial shear stress level has to be reached, then behaves like newtonian fluidDilatant - increase in viscosity as shear rate increases(more difficult to mix as rate of mixing increases)Pseudoplastic - decrease in viscosity as shear rate increases(easier to mix as rate of mixing increases)
exposure of a zinc containing amalgam to water after trituration or condensation can cause what
gradual expansionits caused by formation of H2 gas in the restoration which drives internal pressure up and subsequent creep occursoccurs after 24 hours typically after 3-5 days
What affects mercury toxicity and exposure
the form of mercuryOrganic(methyl or ethyl mercury) is the most dangerous
How do crystal dendrites form
they form outward from the nucleus, appearing like snowflakes
How are dental materials used in the mouth?
Restoration and replacement of damaged tooth/oral structures. IE fillings, bridges, crowns and dentures
give some examples of intermetallic compounds used in dentistry
Ag3Sn, Ag2Hg2 in dental amalgams and Fe3C

T or F spherical alloys resist condensation better than admixed and lather cut amalgams
F lathe cut and admixed resist condensation betterthus spherical amalgams are harder to adapt to contoured proximal surfaces
an intimate atomic level mixture of 2 or more pure metals is called a what
AlloyNOTE alloys are usually stronger than their individual components
T or F spherical alloys require less Hg because they have smaller surface area per volume that lather cut alloys
Tlow Hg content alloys usually have better properties
If Hg and alloy not mixed long enough what happens
little disolution of alloy into Hgsmall portion of reaction occurscrystals formed can grow and hit each othermaterial is grainy, weak, shows high expansion, sets slower, is rougher and corrodes and tarnishes easily

Spherical alloy - between 13-30 wt% CuAdmixed alloy - between 9-20 wt% Cu
T or F the longer the time before trituration and condensation the stronger the amalgam is
F, the more time between trituration and condensation the weaker the amalgam will be
T or F Mercury is volitile and has low surface tension
F, it has high surface tension which causes it to bead up on the floor if spilled
