Powder metallurgy: Quiz


Question 1: Exceedingly fine particles also have been prepared by directing a stream of molten metal through a high-temperature plasma jet or ________, simultaneously atomizing and comminuting the material.

Question 2: Powders of the elements Ti, V, Th, Nb, Ta, Ca, and U have been produced by high-temperature reduction of the corresponding nitrides and ________.

Question 3: Fe, Ni, U, and Be submicrometre powders are obtained by reducing metallic ________ and formates.

Question 4: Two main techniques used to form and consolidate the powder are ________ and metal injection molding.
