Homework Help: Properties of a Single Crystal

  1. Apr 15, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    In a mock exam I was asked for
    Q. Two properties associated with a single crystal.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    For one answer I gave that they are hard.

    I think another answer might have been something to do with crystal planes as this is what the teacher said when going over the paper again.

    I was wondering what this might be? Are crystal planes the same thing as grain boundaries?

    Thanks very much.

    Thanks Rajini.

    Sorry, that was a typo. Have corrected the original question now, which is as it was on the exam.
