Hi! I am struggling to solve the


I am struggling to solve the following:

Nylon 6-6 can be processed in a number of ways. Many of these will cause the alignment of the polymer chains.

a) With clear reference to the concept of processing-structure-property relationships explain how processing might be expected to affect: (i) the crystallinity, (ii) the volume fraction of amorphous regions, and (iii) the anisotropy of tensile properties.
b) Find out information about an additive that can be included in Nylon 6-6. Why is it added to Nylon 6-6? Explain the role of another additive that has a different function in various polymers.
c) Compare and contrast the recyclability of (i) Nylon 6-6, (ii) polyester, (iii) polybutadiene.
d) How does Nylon 6-6’s glass transition temperature, Tg, compare with the whole family of polymers knowns as thermosets? What implications does its Tg have on its use as an engineering material?

If anyone could help with anything that would be amazing
