Properties of Matter
Shewamare, S. (Sisay) (2010)
In this module you will study elastic and transport properties of materials like elasticity, fluid flow, diffusion, osmosis, thermal and electrical conductivities of a materials. At the beginning, activities leading you through the details of the effects of force on various types of materials are presented. Then you will come across activities that will enable you describe the properties of fluids and use these properties to arrive at principles and laws such as Archimedes principle, Pascals law and Bernoull’is equation. The module includes properties like viscosity, diffusion, thermal properties conductivity, expansion), Electrical conductivity of metals, semiconductors and alloys. These properties are also known as transport properties.
