Question

Crystalline solids may be anisotropic due to the arrangement of their constituent particles but how are amorphous solids isotropic in nature?


Solution


Amorphous is said to be isotropic in nature, i.e they have the same value for all the physical properties in different directions. Amorphous solids have short range order so the bond geometry can roughly be taken to be even all around, so they are isotropic.
