    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?
