4. True-False, You must justify your answer for full credit.
a) Dislocations can appear in amorphous materials.
b) A Voight model fully describes the mechanical behavior of most real polymers.
c) The compliance of a testing frame is only important when one is testing a really compliant material.
d) xx =  * xx
