Solids is a lecture from the physics department and the school of geology.

You are free to take this quiz based on solids at any time.

To improve your score, read and study the lecture, the links contained within, listed under See also, External links, and in the {{physics resources}} and {{geology resources}} templates. This should give you adequate background to get 100 %.

As a "learning by doing" resource, this quiz helps you to assess your knowledge and understanding of the information, and it is a quiz you may take over and over as a learning resource to improve your knowledge, understanding, test-taking skills, and your score.

Suggestion: Have the lecture available in a separate window.

To master the information and use only your memory while taking the quiz, try rewriting the information from more familiar points of view, or be creative with association.

Enjoy learning by doing!

Quiz[edit]







  

1

True or False, To reflect at the 79 keV level, glass layers are multi-coated with W/SiC.

TRUE
FALSE

2

Solids with large band gaps are generally?

3

True or False, The presence of a liquid may be detected by using S-waves.

TRUE
FALSE

4

An energy range in a solid where no electron states can exist?

5

True or False, A Faraday cup is a metal conductive cup designed to catch charged particles in vacuum.

TRUE
FALSE

6

A solid state integrated circuit modulator that uses external feedback to control its transfer function or gain is what kind of modulator?

7

Yes or No, The crystal structure of a solid, naturally-occurring substance helps to show it is a mineral.

Yes
No

8

Complete the text:

Condensed noble gases, most notably liquid

and liquid

, are excellent radiation detection

.

9

True or False, The density of states is the number of states per interval of energy at each energy level that are available to be occupied by electrons.

TRUE
FALSE

10

Complete the text:

The electronic band structure of a solid describes those ranges of

called energy

that an electron within the solid may have, called

bands and ranges of energy called band gaps or

bands, which it may not have.

11

True or False, The density distributions of a solid or unit of condensed matter involving more than atoms or molecules is not discrete like a spectral density but continuous.

TRUE
FALSE

12

True or False, Local variations, most often due to distortions of the original system, are often called local density of states.

TRUE
FALSE


Hypotheses[edit]

  1. A glass is easier to detect than a crystalline solid.
  2. A crystalline solid is easier to detect than a liquid.
