Homework Help: Determine a firing temperature from a pore size?

  1. Sep 18, 2012 #1
    Determine a firing temperature from a pore size???

    I did an experiment to find a density of Al2O3 filter (96% pure). By using Pycnometer, hydrostatic weighing method, and SEM images, I was able to find the density. However I have no idea to find the firing temp and reproducing method. When I asked my TA, he told me that Think about think about the particle and pore size. how can you control them during processing?.

    Can you help me out?

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Q1) Address how would you determine the temperature used to fire your sample?
    Q2) Address how would you reproduce a filter that has the same microstructure as your sample

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
