7. Ability to emphasize on polymer synthesis, reaction engineering, and various processing techniques like moulding and extrusion.

8. Should be equipped with the knowledge necessary for deciding which characterization technique(s) would be appropriate for determining properties of interest.

Polymer Engineering Internship Test

Intern has to take Polymer Engineering internship test in which they will be asked 50 multiple-choice questions. They have to score grade A or A* on this test to be eligible for the internship. Here’s a sample set of questions on the Polymer Engineering topic.

1. Which of the following polymer exhibit a lower value of molar cohesion?
(A) wool
(B) silk
(C) vulcanized rubber
(D) polystyrene
View Answer

Answer: C
Explanation: Rubbers have the lowest value of molar cohesion in comparison to plastics and fibres.

2. Consider the following statements for condensation polymerization-
I. Bifunctional or polyfunctional monomers
II. Loss of each kind of functional group in each step for bifunctional species
III. Always accompanied by the release of a byproduct molecule
IV. Monofunctional or polyfunctional monomers
Which of the following are true?
(A) I and II
(B) I, II and III
(C) I and III
(D) III and IV
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: III is not true because in some reactions, there is no elimination of any molecule. Besides, monofuntional monomers fail to complete the reaction. At each step of reaction, two functional groups, one of each kind, are lost.

3. What is true about an end functional group, having a terminal reactive centre, of a polymer molecule?
(A) has a greater mobility than the polymer molecule as a whole
(B) has a lower mobility than the polymer molecule as a whole
(C) same as polymer molecule
(D) cannot be determined
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: The functional group at a free end has a good degree of mobility to collide and faster reaction to take place.

4. How does the weight distribution vary with increasing conversion and constant trifunctionality?
(A) gets broader
(B) gets narrower
(C) remains constant
(D) none of the mentioned
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: The distribution broadens as the extent of reaction is increased, keeping the functionality same.

5. Why is it advisable to stop the reaction nearly 10-15% earlier the critical reaction completion?
(A) cross-linking occurs
(B) to avoid damage of reaction bowl
(C) insoluble, bad quality product is obtained
(D) all of the mentioned
View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: If the reaction continues beyond the critical point, the product obtained will be unusable. So, it is advised to stop the reaction 10-15% earlier in p to avoid all the above problems and get good quality product.
