I’m a Princeton materials science major with a minor in philosophy. I studied biology and chemistry at the university level. After graduation, I studied for six months with an MIT-affiliated PhD program. I did not, however, graduate. I worked for a week as a lab assistant at a research foundation, doing research on polymers. While I was there, I got to know two professors who encouraged me to apply for a position as a graduate student with a Ph.D.
The position I applied for was called the “graduate student with a Ph.D”. It was an extremely competitive position and I was one of only three people in the entire department to get that position. While I was there, I was assigned to work with a group of graduate students with a Ph.D. in a different department. We spent four months working on polymer science, trying to understand how the polymers they were working with might be used in materials.
I didn’t really understand what polymer science was, but it was certainly interesting (a lot of fun!) and I feel like I learned a lot of interesting things about polymer science, polymer science in general, and polymer science in particular.
Polymer science is pretty much the study of synthetic materials. Most graduate students in that department have a polymer science minor in their bio-science major. Polymer science is the study of how a material can be shaped, altered, molded, or otherwise manipulated. The materials science department is one of the few areas of the university that specializes in polymers.
The materials science department is the one department of the university that focuses on the scientific study of materials that are made of a polymer, or polymer-like materials. Polymers are a diverse group of materials that have a number of applications in the areas of manufacturing, energy, and the like.
Polymers are materials that can be made into a number of shapes, which can then be manipulated into a variety of applications. Polymers are used in everything from making clothing, to building cars, to making cell phones. Polymer science is also one of the more popular areas of the university, and a number of the students that attend this department participate in various polymer-related competitions.
Polymer science is a very popular field of study but one that many people have more interest in than the actual results of the research. As a result, there are some very important concepts in this field that are not usually taught in undergraduate courses. One of these concepts is what we call the “thermal decomposition temperature.” This is the temperature that polymer chains are able to decompose without further processing.
For the sake of simplicity, we’ll refer to this temperature as the weight.
In this blog post we will discuss the two thermite properties that are most relevant to our discussions, temperature and pressure, and how they affect the decomposition temperatures of polymers.
The first property we should look at is the “temperature” of the polymer. The two main types of thermite are “thermite” or “thermal” and “thermobaric”. These are not mutually exclusive, and they can coexist in the same sample.
