Determine the coefficient of thermal expansion, Physics

1) The potential energy between two atoms can be represented as follows:

where A and B are constants and r the interatomic separation distance in metres. Plot the potential energy verses distance relationships for these atoms when A= 5 x 10-30 J.m and B= 8 x 10-121 J.m10. Determine the coefficient of thermal expansion (in m/moK) for the material over the following temperature ranges:

a) 0K to 0oC,

b) 0oC to 820oC.

c) assume that thermal energy of the system is 3kT/2 where k is Boltzman's constant k = 1.381 x10-23 J/oK.

Submit a paper printout of the plot of the potential energy verses distance relationship including any markings necessary to understand how you determined the coefficient of thermal expansion.

2) Gallium arsenide (GaAs) has the zinc blende structure. The gallium atoms are in FCC packing and the arsenic atoms occupy half the tetrahedral sites. Calculate the density of Gallium arsenide (GaAs) using the following data.

Ga: Covalent Radius = 1.26 Ångstroms,  Atomic Mass  = 69.7 g/mole

As:  Covalent Radius  = 1.19 Ångstroms,  Atomic Mass = 74.9 g/mole

Avogadro's number is 6.02 x 1023 atoms per mole.

3) Using the phase diagram below for the aluminium-magnesium system, determine

i) the phases present and

ii) the composition (wt% Mg) of each phase and

iii) the amount of each phase for:

a) an aluminium-magnesium (5 wt % Mg) alloy at 500oC.

b) an aluminium-magnesium (20 wt % Mg) alloy at 550oC.

c) an aluminium-magnesium (80 wt % Mg) alloy at 300oC.
