The Deborah number (De) is defined as follows:
De = relaxation time of the material / time scale of the process or experiment
When De<<1, the material may be described as being “liquid-like” in its response, and when
De>>1, the material may be described as “solid-like”. At intermediate values, the material may
be described as being viscoelastic, having a dual liquid (visco-) and solid (elastic) behavior.
(a) From this definition explain why at room temperature water and window glass are not
viscoelastic while a compound like silly putty is.
(b) How does the phenomenon of the glass transition temperature relate to viscoelasticity?
(c) Please give an example of a viscoelastic phenomenon that may occur during melt processing
of a polymer.

A researcher would like to determine if relaxation training will affect the number of headaches for chronic headache sufferers (n = 8). A week before training, each participant recorded the number of headaches experienced. Participants then receive relaxation training and following training the number of headaches were recorded again. The following results were provided: ΣD = -16 SS = 14 Determine whether the results indicate a significant difference in chronic headaches after relaxation training? Use an alpha .05, level of...
