Structure and Classification of Engineering Materials level 3 watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi All

    I was wondering if anyone can help me - am I interpreting this Question
    Theproperties of materials are classified as:
    • Mechanical
    • Physical
    • Thermal
    • Electrical
    • Magnetic
    For each category, pick two specific properties, describe them and say why they are of interest to a design engineer From each category pick one specific property and state its application in an engineering context. Guidance:When answering the question think what is about theproperty that makes it useful? Where possible link the choices to your work. Ifthis is not possible you may use examples of domestic applications.

    Does that mean for
    Metal, Polymers, Ceramic, Composites, Smart materials
    Pick two
    properties Mechanical, Physical, Thermal, Electrical, Magnetic
    E.g.- Metal – talk about the mechanical and electrical properties
    thank you
