Inverse piezoelectric effect

  1. Mar 27, 2015 #1
    Hi, I'd like to get some help with my homework.
    Piezoelectric crystals will change about 0.1% of their static dimension when an external electric field is applied to the material.
    1. What happens with the static dimension if the external electric field applied is a constant?
    2. Will the static dimension reach a limit?
    3. It's always expanding and contracting?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Then you should post in the homework section and use the template. :)
