    I know it asked for the definition of an Alloy, but did it then ask for an alloy and named properties or a smart material named with a use and properties?

    Can i just clarify that there is no external heating in compression moulding right? Only because i put that the heat was caused by the pressure exerted by the top die whereas someone else said that the mould was externally heated but i thought that it is the extreme pressure that creates the heat and that it is the pressure that forces it into shape?

    Can't remember the letters but got:
    Bottle = blow moulding
    Vinyl Sign = CNC plotter cutter
    Yogurt pot = Vacuum forming
    Modelling prototype = 3D printer

    Yogurt thing I put injection, I think but I was definetly thinking about it and I am not that stupid to put it as that so I think I might have put it as vacuum forming.

    Went reasonably well hope u all thought so too;
    Did BAEC, allow is mixture of two or more metals for enhanced properties, stainless steel- sink because shiny and doesn't rust, ear guards, goggles, corrosive, toxic?, I did q6 and fsc is forest stewardship council, materials sourced from sustainable forest etc, aluminium- ductile,malleable, spinning, press forming, shiny, lightweight, conductor etc, spinning process was ok, kettle safety/ergonomics, urea formaldehyde is thermoset electrical insulator, heat insulator so doesn't burn or shock, compression I accidentally called the bottom mould a die and I think I said the die was heated which is wrong, last question it is thermoset to hard to recycle end up in landfill, etc.

    Good luck for anyone doing physics aqa tomoz I'm dreading new spec!!
