Experimental Determination of Young’s Modulus of Elasticity of Timber and Metals

Elasticity is a property of material, which is manifested as reversible deformation under applied load. This reversible or elastic deformation is through stretching of inter-atomic bonds and therefore, there is an associated volume change with this type of deformation. Every material resists its deformation by the load applied onto it. In elastic deformation regime this… View Article

Flame test lab report

Intro: The flame test is a procedure used by chemists to identify the presence of specified metal ions, based on the color the flame that appears along with it when it’s heated. Our flame test was in lab class, where the main aim was to tested different solid metals in the flame in order to… View Article

What is an alloy?

An alloy is a solid solution or homogeneous mixture of two or more elements where a material with better or different properties is produced. The range of alloys produced depends on the solubility of the constituents and the proportion of them. The number of possible alloy combinations is almost endless since any metal can be… View Article

Niobium’s use in Nuclear Reactors

Niobium, with a chemical symbol of Nb, is the lustrous light gray ductile metallic element that resembles tantalum chemically, and proves to be an extremely essential yet fascinating transition element. With an atomic number of 41, niobium combines strength, a high melting point, resistance to chemical attack, and a low neutron absorption cross-section. All of… View Article
