Imperfections in Solids - I

Defects in Non-Stoichiometric Compounds: The compounds in which the ratio between numbers of anions to number of anions is not equal to ratio indicated by the formula.
  • Metal Excess Defect
  • Metal Deficiency Defect.
a. Metal Excess Defect: In these compounds there is an excess of cations along with the electrons occurs.   

i. Anion Vacancy:

⇒ This free electron center is called F-centre.

⇒ Due to this only these compounds exhibits colour.
Anion Vacancy
ii. Interstitial cation:

⇒ In this one of the cation will present at the interstitial position and which is stabilized by the electron at interstitial position.

⇒ In this the number of cations are not equal to the number of anions. 
Interstitial cation

b. Metal Deficiency Effect:

i. Cation Vacancy: One cationic space is empty instead of that a positive cation will present in order to maintain the electrical neutrality.
Cation Vacancy

ii. Interstitial Anion: In this defect the anion occupies interstitial position and one of the cation will be in its +2 oxidation state.

Clock Puzzle 2 (With Answers)

Puzzle-1: Where should the hour hand point to on the bottom clock?
Answer: Hour hand is pointing to 2.

Explanation: Multiply the hour hand value by 2 and add the minute hand value. This total is always 15.

Puzzle-2: What time should the bottom clock show?
Answer: Five minutes to ten

Explanation: Start with the top left clock face, and move around the others clockwise. The minute hand moves backwards by 15 minutes, then 20, then 25 etc., while the hour hand moves forward 2 hours, then 3, then 4 etc.

Puzzle-3:  Where should the hour hand point to on the bottom clock?
Answer: To the 5

Explanation: Start with the top left clockface, and move around the others in a clockwise direction. The sum of the numbers pointed to by the hour and minute hand follows the sequence 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18.

Puzzle-4: What time should the last watch show?
Answer: 6:20

Explanation: On each watch, the sum of the digits shown equals 8.

Puzzle-5: Where should the hour hand point to on the bottom clock?
Answer: The hour hand points to the 4.

Explanation: The sum of the values pointed to by the hands on each clock equals 12.

Resolution of Vectors

We can now resolve a vector A in terms of component vectors that lie along unit vectors î and ĵ. Consider a vector A that lies in x - y plane as shown in figure. We draw lines from the head of A perpendicular to the coordinate axes as in figure and get vectors A1 and A2 such that A+ A= A since A1 is parallel to î and A2 is parallel to ĵ. we have:

A1 = Ax î, A= Ay ĵ

Where Ax and Ay are real numbers.

Thus, A = Ax î + Ay ĵ

This is represented in figure. The quantities Ax and Ay  are called x - and y - components of the vector A. note that Ax is itself not a vector, but Ax î  is a vector, and so is Ay ĵ. Using simple trigonometry, we can express Ax and Ay in terms of the magnitude of A and the angle θ  it makes with the axis:

Ax = A cos θ

Ay = A sin θ

As is clear from Ay = A sin θ a component of a vector can be positive, negative or zero depending on the value of θ.

Now, we have two ways to specify a vector A in a plane. It can be specified by:

i) Its magnitude A and the direction θ it makes with the x -axis or

ii) Its components Ax and Ay

If A and θ are given, Ax and Ay can be obtained using Ay = A sin θ. If Ax and Ay are given, A and θ can be obtained as follows:

A2x + A2y = A2 cos2 θ + A2 sin2 θ

A2x + A2y = A2


A = √ (Aₓ² + Ay²)

And tanθ = Ay/Aₓ, θ = tan⁻¹ Ay/Aₓ
Ax = A cosα, Ay = A cos β, A= A cos ɣ

In general, we have
A = Ax î + Ay ĵ + Az } }
The magnitude of vector A is A = √ (Aₓ² + Ay² + Az²)
A position vector r can be expressed as r = x î + y ĵ + z} } k̂.
Where x, y and z are the components of r along x, y, z- axes, respectively.} }
