27 28 I I Overview of Ceramics The isotherm, or constant temperature, would represent the melting temperature of the crystal. The reason why crystals have specific melting temperatures is that all of the bonds have the same strength, as crystals have a repetitive structure. When energy is added in the form of heat, all of the bonds will break at the same temperature or melting point. A cooling curve representing a noncrystalline, or "glassy," material that cools from a melt is shown in Figure 5-2.

The atomic numbers (AN) from 1 (hydrogen) to 14 (silicon) correspond to the electronic configurations shown in Table 8-1. The number of electrons is represented by the Atomic Structure 43 TABLE 8-1.
