Black's hand instrument formula:
1. 3 numbers mean what?
2. 4 numbers mean what?
- 1. Width, length, angle.
- 2. Width, angle (cutting edge), length, angle (blade). [WALA...as in "viola! 4 Numbers]
What's the composition of Gamma phase?
Silver and Tin. (Ag3Sn)
What's the composition of Gamma 1?
Silver and Mercury. (Ag2Hg3)
What's the composition of Gamma 2?
Silver and Tin (Sn8Hg)
Because the Tin man is retarded, we don't want him! We don't want Gamma 2.
What's the composition of Epsilon phase?
Copper and tin. Cu3Sn
What's the composition of Eutectic phase?
Silver and copper. Ag3Cu2
What's the composition of eta phase
Copper and tin. (Cu6Sn5)
How do you get rid of Gamma 2 in high copper admix alloy?
Start with Gamma + eutectic + mercury to yield Gamma + gamma 1 + gamma 2 + eutectic.
To get rid of gamma 2, use solid state reaction which is gamma 2 + eutectic yields gamma 1 + eta.

2. Which phase is most creep resistance?
3. Which phase is most corrosion resistance?
- 1. Gamma
- 2. Eutectic (Eu-Tectic Creep....You tectic creep!!)
- 3. Gamma 1
1. What kind of particles does lathe-cut have? Does it require more or less mercury to wet?
2. What kind of particles does sphereical have? Does it require more or less mercury to wet?
- 1. Cracked. More.
- 2. Smooth. Less
1. What does under-mixed amalgam look like and what're the disadvantages?
2. What does over-rmixed amalgam look like and what're the disadvantages?
- 1. Dry and crumbly. It increases creep and decreases tensile and compressive strength
- 2. Warm with a dull surface. It increases setting time and decreases creep and contraction .
What would be the effect of prolonged condensation on amalgam?
It will crack the forming matrix.
Which root is the straighest in the maxillary molars?
Are facial embrasures bigger than lingual embrasures?
What's the exception?
No. Facial embrasures are smaller than lingual embrasures. The Maxillary 1st molar is the exception.
