# CTE Resource Center - Verso - Production Systems Task 1352643118

CTE Resource Center - Verso

Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Research materials to determine their mechanical, physical, and chemical properties for a designed product.

Definition

Research should identify

  • mechanical properties (e.g., compression, tension, torsion, shear)
  • physical properties (e.g., thermal, electrical, magnetic, optical, acoustical)
  • chemical properties (e.g., corrosion, reactivity, bonding).

Process/Skill Questions

  • What are methods for preventing corrosion?
  • How can mechanical properties be tested?
  • What is the difference between destructive and non-destructive testing?

  1. average atomic mass, mass number, and atomic number;
  2. isotopes, half lives, and radioactive decay;
  3. mass and charge characteristics of subatomic particles;
  4. families or groups;
  5. periods;
  6. trends including atomic radii, electronegativity, shielding effect, and ionization energy;
  7. electron configurations, valence electrons, and oxidation numbers;
  8. chemical and physical properties; and
  9. historical and quantum models.

PH.3

The student will investigate and demonstrate an understanding of the nature of science, scientific reasoning, and logic. Key concepts include
  1. analysis of scientific sources to develop and refine research hypotheses;
  2. analysis of how science explains and predicts relationships;
  3. evaluation of evidence for scientific theories;
  4. examination of how new discoveries result in modification of existing theories or establishment of new paradigms; and
  5. construction and defense of a scientific viewpoint.

PH.4

The student will investigate and understand how applications of physics affect the world. Key concepts include
  1. examples from the real world; and
