Materials in Today's World

Summary and Final Tasks



Materials are formed or manufactured into components that are incorporated into useful products. During these processes, the properties of the materials can be enhanced or adversely affected. Knowledge of these effects and the economic costs are many times needed to successfully bring a product to market.
