    help! i need info on the molecular structure of steel, almunium, titanium and carbon fibre as to why they have the properties they have. cant seem to find anything on net, but iam sure there must be inofmration somewhere. diagrams would be great to. anyone know such a website?

    thanks

    well, titanium is the usual metal structure, lots of metal ions in a sea of delocalxsed electrons

    thanks, but the link does not work!?

    yeah i know that titanium and aluminium have a strucutre of a giant mettallic lattic with ions and a sea of electrons. However, what makes their properties different. Is it because they have differing numbers of electrons which strengthens the mettallic bond? What else could there be.

    And also, how does the carbon in steel make iron stronger, and how the does molecular structure change?

    thanks again

    Couldn't find a lot really. A little bit here. A bit babyish but there's some stuff.

    Perhaps you could choose a different topic? I started off doing tungsten in light bulbs but when I couldn't find much stuff on it, I did glass instead. There was literally loads on it.

    hey, i did the structure of aluminium and the best thing to do for the molecular structure is to draw it coz its pretty simple - just some positive metal ions surrounded by the negative electron "glue". try in paint, i know its kiddish but its simple, copy and paste for the same size circles etc. hope this helps

    thanks you guys. i have managed to get enough information on the materials now. Now its just the task of writing it up b4 tommorrow morning. thats the worst part.

    cheers
