Answer to Question #27339 in Inorganic Chemistry for anissa
specific heat, the transition temperature, the birefringence, the speed of crystal growth, the ferromagnetic property, dextrorotatory property.
Many types of single crystal exhibit anisotropy, that is, a variation ofsome of their physical properties according to the direction along which they are measured. For example, the electrical resistivity of a randomly oriented aggregate of graphite crystallites is the same in all directions. This anisotropy exists both for structure-sensitive properties, which are strongly affected by crystal imperfections (such as cleavage and crystal growth rate), and for structure-insensitive properties, which are not affected by imperfections (such as elastic coefficients).
