Assignment 1: Discussion—Materials Science: Designing Form to
Materials science is an interdisciplinary field where science and
technology are used to develop and apply our understanding of matter at the
atomic level to improve existing or to make new materials. It is a fusion of
the basic scientific fields of physics and chemistry where knowledge of atomic
theory, molecular bonding, and the macroscopic properties of metals, ceramics,
and plastics come together to solve manufacturing and engineering problems.
Use the Internet, Argosy University library resources, and your
textbook to research materials science. Do the following:
scientific and technical concepts related to materials science. Use the
manufacturing of one of the following materials as the basis for your
how materials science has advanced to the stage where materials can be
engineered to fit a specific purpose.
- Provide an
example of an application or object that is made of materials specifically
engineered for that purpose.
Support your statements with examples. Provide a minimum of three
Write your initial response in 2–3 paragraphs. Apply APA standards
