Textbook Problem

What gives metals their desirable properties?

Expert Solution
To determine

The terms that define the desired properties of a metal.

Answer to Problem 1R

Mechanical properties of the metals

Explanation of Solution

The desirable properties of a metal are described from its mechanical properties such as:

Hardness:

The property of a material that offers resistance against indentation or penetration.

Toughness:

The property that allows a metal to resist shocks, forces, or bend without fracture.

Ductility:

The property of a metal that allows it to deform without any sign of crack, when subjected to a tensile force.

Brittleness:

The property that allows a metal to break without any deformation.

Strength:

It is the property of a material to resist the deformation.
