5. (15 pts) For his honors contract, your colleague Blake Povilus carried out a study of the thermodynamicsof synthesizing (Mo,Cr)Cl3 single crystal nano-particles for quantum devices. A link to his

videopresentation is given in the class's Canvas site. Answer the following questions: O What method was chosen for synthesizing these nanoparticles? What was the critical thermodynamic variable used to control the growth? ) What thermodynamic information was he needing to complete the study?
