Explain whether GLASS TRANSITION TEMPERATURE is exothermic or endothermic??????????

6 years ago


Answers : (1)


Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) can be used to measure a number of characteristic properties of a sample. Using this technique it is possible to observe  glass transition temperatures Tg.

Glass transitions may occur as the temperature of an amorphous solid is increased. These transitions appear as a step in the baseline of the recorded DSC signal. This is due to the sample undergoing a change in heat capacity; no formal phase change occurs. As the temp increase solid wil become less viscous.At the same time molecule may obtain enough freedom of motion to spontaneously range themselves into a crystalline form.This is known as crystallization temperature.This transition from amorphous solid to crystalline is an exothermic process and result in the peak of DSC signal.As the temp increases the sample eventually reaches its melting temp.The melting process results in endothermic peaks in DSC signal.

It is Osmium. The higher density of Osmium may be explained on the basis of its higher atomic mass and greater value of effective nuclear charge onto its outermost electrons.

-R effect of -COOR is greater than -COOH. What is the best reason behind it.
Simple answer: in Ester that is -COOR there is R group that is the combination carbon and hydrogen atoms. And -R group always shows +R effect thus decreases -R effect.
Vikas TU 27 days ago
R is a alkyl group and so it is a electron pushing group and so t shows -R effect much better than H COO
since “R”(Alkyl) group is +R group so decrease -R effect while H doesnot hence -R effect of -COOR is greater than -COOH.
