Example text

Here, it can be mentioned that typically many metals are characterized by interatomic potential energy well having a shallow and a rather flat curvature at the equilibrium separation distance. This explains the relatively lower melting point and lower Young’s modulus of metals, in comparison with those of ceramics. 2â•… Covalent Bonding The bond between two atoms created by sharing of electrons is called a covalent bond. The electronic density gets concentrated between the two nuclei, giving this bond a directionality.

Low coordination number and high-charge cation is favorably shared at corners. 5. Different-sized constituents do not efficiently pack as a single structure. In ceramics, the lattice structure is dictated by the larger anions, with cations sitting at the interstices. Various ceramic structures are explained based on the close packing of ceramics. 4â•… Rock salt (NaCl-type structure of MgO). 5â•… ZnS wurtzite structure. 1â•… NaCl-type Rock-Salt Structure In the rock-salt-type structure, large anions occupy the simple cubic close packing and all octahedral interstitial positions are occupied by the small cations.

The interaction of electronic charges leads to bonding, which can be (1) primary, where electrons are transferred (or shared) between atoms, and (2) secondary, where local charges create attraction with a nearby atom without actually transferring or sharing electrons between atoms. 1. 1 PRIMARY BONDING Bonds in ceramics are usually ionic and covalent in nature. Therefore, metallic bonding is not discussed in this section. 1â•… Ionic Bonding Ionic bonding is characterized by the transfer of electrons from one atom to another.
