I'm doing it! I was taught particle physics but since by teacher was useless I didnt understand everything and my notes were poor I decided to learn solid materials

do u think i can learn solid materials in 3 days? i don't want to do astro which is the one i studied, cause i never go well in that topic. i just opened the solid materials book and it doesn't seem difficult. can i make it in 3 days?

Im in a similar situation - it depends how well you know astro. You can do it if you put a lot of effort in as solid materials isnt that hard but it's up to you

YES!!! solid materials is easy...just learn stress-strain curves for different materials like copper, high carbon steel, rubber.....and force-extension graphs..and how to find youngs' modulus...and energy-density....and there always comes a graph it seems...get info from the graph and do calculations mostly..or sketch a graph...then there comes elastomers, polycrystalline materials..amorphous...thermoset s...thermorsetting plastics and thermosets...examples for these....laminates...composites. ...just know what they mean...and identify them.....then you need to know about defects...grain boundaries and edge dislocations....have to know what workhardening,anealing, quench hardening and creep means.....i can write up notes later.....before sunday..i'm just writing from memory....

Same, I did major screw up in the practical, I might have to resit physics altogether, if I dont get a good grade on the other 3 papers. (My option topic is solid materials as well)


Exam next monday and I haven't started proper revision yet. Ah well.

Yep AS and nope, believe it or not, all I've got is notes for all the units from my teacher. We dont use books, sadly.

and i forgot..there's maleability and ductility...ultimate tensile strength, yield stress, hooke's law, limit of proportionality, elastic and plastic deformation, tough, strong, brittle, flexible materials
