  2. A solid material class composed of one or more metallic elements (Fe, Cu, Al, Ni, etc.). May have small amounts of non-metallic elements (O, C, N).
  3. A solid material class composed of compounds between metallic and non-metallic elements, most often, oxides, nitrides, and carboden of metallic or non-metallic materials. For example, aluminum ocide (Al2O3), Silicon Carbide.
  4. Traditional ________ are composed of clay materials as well as cement & glass. They have comparable mechanical properties to metals, however are quite brittle in nature.
  5. A solid material class that include the familiar plastic & rubber materials. Many of them are organic compounds based on carbon and hydrogen. Not strong or stiff, highly ductile.

  8. Advanced material that has electrical properties that are intermediate between electrical conductors (metals & alloys) and imulators (ceramics & polymers).
  9. Advanced materials that are for implantation into the human body to replace damaged body parts.
  10. Advanced materials that are able to sense changes in their enironment and respond to this change in a specific way.
    Smart Materials
  11. Advanced material that may be any of the solid basic materials, but have a grain sizes structure of a nano meter (10^-9 m)
  12. The number equal to the number of protons and electrons in an atom.
    Atomic Number (Z)
  13. The sum of the masses of protons & neutrons within the nucleus.
    Atomic Mass (A)
