Solid materials can be classified into three different categories named crystalline, polycrystalline and amorphous. Advance studies in material chemistry lead to development of technology and innovation.
(a) Define the factors that should be taken into consideration when innovating new materials.
(b) What makes crystal is different from amorphous material? Give one example for each type of materials.
Molecular characteristics example density, crystal size attractive forces the components of the molecule arrangement and ion states of the engineed products.
Amorphous material are rigid but lack well defined shapes and specific geometry. Example is plastics
