1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
What is meant by:
Softening temperature
Flow temperature
Tack temperature

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
I have no idea about these, except that these are covered under thermal methods of analysis.

Some of these should be fairly easy to look up. What have you found?

I just got the defination of Glass traction temperature. And I got a few references for softening point, as the point at which a glass can be molded or worked. Is this correct?
