Answer to Question #108544 in Mechanical Engineering for Roopali Jha

Question #108544
PET has a Young's, Modulus of 3.5 GPa and PLGA 1.2 GPa. A polymer blend is prepared with 50:50 mixture (PET:PlGA) . What is the Young's, Modulus of this blend (use mixture rule). Calculate the percent load borne by PET when the blend is subjected to a load. If after 10 days, half of PET and one third of PLGA had degraded, what is the Young's Modulus of this blend.

3.5 GPa,

It has mixture of 50:50



Y


Let . P be the load applied on blend mixture


Total elongation = elongation of 1 + elongation of 2

so here Youngs modulues for mixture after 10 days as per rule of degradation



GPa


This Youngs modulus after 10 days
