PROBLEM SOLUTIONS
1. Calculate the fraction of atom sites that are vacant for lead at its melting temperature of 327°C (600 K). Assume
an energy for vacancy formation of 0.55 eV/atom.
Solution
In order to compute the fraction of atom sites that are vacant in lead at 600 K, we must employ Equation
4.1. As stated in the problem, Q= 0.55 eV/atom. Thus,

N kT (8.62 × 10 eV/atom- K )(600 K)

2. Calculate the activation energy for vacancy formati on in aluminum, given that the equilibrium number of
vacancies at 500 °C (773 K) is 7.57 × 10 23m . The atomic weight and density (at 500 °C) for aluminum are,
respectively, 26.98 g/mol and 2.62 g/cm .
Solution
Upon examination of Equation 4.1, all parameters besides Q are given except N, the total number of
v
atomic sites. However, N is related to the density, ( ρ ), Avogadro's number ( N ), and the atomic weight ( A )

Solution
In order to compute composition, in atom percent, of a 30 wt% Zn -70 wt% Cu alloy, we employ Equation
4.6 as

4. For an ASTM grain size of 8, approximately how many grains would there be per square inch at
(a) a magnification of 100, and
(b) without any magnification?
Solution
(a) This part of problem asks that we compute the number of grains per square inch for an ASTM grain
size of 8 at a magnification of 100 ×. All we need do is solve for the parameter N in Equation 4.16, inasmuch as n =
8. Thus
n−1
N = 2
8−1 2
= 2 = 128 grains/in.
