What is Degree of Crystallinity?
The degree of crystallinity is defined as the fractional amount of polymer that is crystalline and it is either expressed in terms of the mass fraction or the volume fraction. • For semi-crystalline polymers, the degree of crystallinity is one of its most important physical parameters since it reflects the sample's morphology and determines various mechanical properties, such as the Young modulus, yield stress as well as impact strength. • Differential scanning calorimetry is widely used to determine the amount of crystalline material. It can be used to determine the fractional amount of crystallinity in a polymer sample. Other commonly used methods are X-ray diffraction, density measurements, and infrared spectroscopy.
How to Calculate Volume Fraction of Crystalline Components?
Volume Fraction of Crystalline Components calculator uses Volume Fraction of Crystalline Components = Total Volume of Crystalline Components/Total Volume of Specimen to calculate the Volume Fraction of Crystalline Components, The Volume Fraction of Crystalline Components formula is defined as the ratio of total volume of crystalline components to the total volume of specimen. Volume Fraction of Crystalline Components is denoted by ε_{c} symbol.
How to calculate Volume Fraction of Crystalline Components using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Volume Fraction of Crystalline Components, enter Total Volume of Crystalline Components (v_{c}) & Total Volume of Specimen (v) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Volume Fraction of Crystalline Components calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.488636 = 4.3/8.8.
