Registration No: Total Number of Pages: 02 B.Tech PCMT4201 3rd Semester Back Examination 2017-18 Introduction to Physical Metallurgy BRANCH : METTA, MME Time: 3 Hours Max Marks: 70 Q.CODE: B1188 Answer Question No.1 which is compulsory and any five from the rest. The figures in the right hand margin indicate marks. Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Q5 Answer the following questions: (2 x 10) a) Define coordination number and atomic packing factor. b) Show schematically the (1 1 2), (0- 1 0) planes and [-2 1 -1], [-1 -1 -1] directions in cubic crystals. c) Distinguish between crystalline and non-crystalline solids. d) Define solid solution, Gibb’s phase rule, phase diagram and lever rule. e) What is peritectic reaction? f) Why are grain boundaries favorable sites for nucleation and growth of precipitates? g) Draw and show the difference in the micro structures formed after annealing and normalizing. h) Draw a neat sketch of a cooling curve for pure metal. i) What is the difference between TTT and CCT? j) Draw phase diagram of pure Iron (from room temperature onwards). a) State Hume-Rothery rule rules that favors substitutional solid solution.
