Iron phostate, also extensively known as FePO4, was studied through a special type of transformation process known as neutron powder diffraction. The transformation process uses a temperature that ranges from 297K to 1073K. As long as it is within the low temperature range, it is defined as the ‘α’ phase. Otherwise, if it is within the high temperature range, it is defined as the ‘β’ phase. The iron phostate will change its tetrahedral form in the low temperature range to its octahedral form in high temperature range. However, in the first-order phase transition, it can be seen that the structural changes was discontinued, this is defined by a temperature that is near 980K. As the temperature continues to increase, the cell parameters and volume tends to increase in a*…show more content…*

As such, in the low temperature of α phase, the structural properties will incline towards the values observed for high temperature in β phase of FePO4.

As the temperature increases, the tetrahedral form is being distorted by vibrations where the cell parameters and volume of α phase increases in a non-linear manner, it causes the change in angle and length of bond of the FePO4 structure. As the α-β phase transition reaches the temperature of 980K, the tetrahedral angle decreases and the FE-O-P bridging angles increases.

The main influence to the thermal expansion of FePO4 is known as angular variation where there is change between the two symmetrically-independent intertetrahedral bridging angles and its tilt angles. Thus, in relevance to temperature dependence on thermal expansion, the temperature is indirectly dependent on the angular variations of its bridging angles and tilt angles. Using the Landau-type model formula, δ

[1 + (1 – ¾ (T – Tc/T0 – Tc))^1/2], where at T0 =980K, δ0 is the drop in tilt angle and Tc is the temperature of second order transition, the dependence on the angle can be derived. Above that, during the occurrence

For the test, the generating temperature, Tg, ranged from 40 °C to 70 °C, and the evaporating temperature, Te, was set at 10 °C and 15 °C, respectively.

## Binding Energy: Fission Versus Nuclear Fusion

1242 Words | 5 PagesDoing some algebra, we can then reduce to the expression 〖nτ〗_E≥L T/σv where L is a constant, T is the temperature of the system, σ is the nuclear cross section, or chance that two particles have to collide, and v is the relative velocity of the two particles. Multiplying both sides by T then gives the triple product as a function of temperature. This is useful because it provides a minimum value for the product of 〖nTτ〗_E for a fusion reaction to occur (Lawson, J. “Some”). The exact value of this minimum will change depending on the type of fuel used in the reaction.

## Summary: Latent Heat Of Fusion

982 Words | 4 PagesSo this type of heat is called latent heat (Figura and Teixeira, 2007). So latent heat of fusion is also the enthalpy of fusion of a substances and molecule, or in another words is the changes of enthalpy of a substances or molecule when it starts to melt. The solid phase has a lower internal energy than the liquid phase, so energy is needed for a solid to melt into liquid (En.wikipedia.org, 2016). Phase transition is used to describe substance changes from

Observation/ Research: Charles’s Law According to Jacques Charles, “if the temperature of the gas increases, the volume of the gas also will be increased or other way around.” (Charles). This statement describes Charles Law. According to this law, “the Volume and Temperature are directly proportional and pressure is held constant” (Charles). This shows that V/T = k, where k is constant.

This included the calibration of the pH probes, as well as the temperature and location of the trials. Trials on hotter days or under the sun will increase in temperature quicker, affecting the reliability of that result. Over the coming days of trials, the systematic error adds inconsistently until the error becomes random on a global view. Other indeterminate random error consists in the apparatus and measuring accuracy, fluctuating at half the measurement of the lowest measurements made.

Most reactions either release or consume energy. This loss and or gain of energy can be referred to as either Endothermic-gaining heat, or exothermic- losing heat. it is imperative that chemists understand thermal energy so that they understand how molecules react.

## Arrhenius Equation Research Paper

856 Words | 4 PagesArrhenius equation is a mathematical expression which illustrates the effect of temperature on the rate of a chemical reaction and is used to calculate reaction-rate constants\cite{logan}. In the equation, we have $k$ as the reaction-rate constant, R as the thermodynamic gas constant, A as the pre-exponential factor, E$_a$ as the activation energy and finally $T$ as the absolute temperature. Generally, the equation is represented in exponential form: \begin{equation} k = A \exp[-E_a/RT] \end{equation} It clearly shows that a small increase in temperature would result in a remarkable increase in the magnitude of the reaction-rate constant. The numerical constant A and E$_a$ were derived by collision and transition-state theories of the reactions where E$_a$ represents the energy of activation, measured in kJ mol$^{-1}$. $"A"$ represents the frequency at which atoms react during the chemical reaction and is dimensionless.
