Q- What type of defect can arise when a solid is heated? Which physical property is affected by it and in what way?
Answer- Vacancy defect arises when a solid is heated. While heating some of the lattice sites became vacant and this affected the density of that solid.
Reason: The Vacancy defect leads to a decrease in the density of that solid matter.
