Learning Outcomes
  1. Realize the importance of the daily life of the polymer material.
  2. Understand the difference between the polymer molecules, polymers and other small molecules of these substances after a broad definition would appear at every stage of our lives, so will realize the application areas, a polymeric structure of our bodies, and that so many things to see in nature, they are prone to polymerized polymer molecules to understand what type of obtaining.
  3. The resulting polymeric products are the desired physical, chemical, electrical, optical, etc.. having the characteristics of applications can be used as a material for various purposes according to understand.
  4. They understand the thermal and mechanical properties of the polymer.
