What I learn in my major class

My major(Materials Sci. & Eng.) class is ENMA 661, Kinetics of Reactions in Materials. This class focus on phase transfrmation in materals. In other words, This class has the theory of thermally activated processes in solids as applied to diffusion, nucleation and interface motion. As you know, Most studnets (including me) have been suffering from this confusing class!

Jinwoo, can you please explain what diffusion, nucleation, and interface motion are?

I think phase transformation must refer to changes in physical state? Or is phase different from state?

It sounds pretty difficult!

Hi Jinwoo,

this seems to be a very difficult area of knowledge, but I am sure that you will manage it.

It seems like you will have to work hard, but it will pay off at the end!

Cheers from the uk!
