Why the crystalline defects are called thermodynamic defects?

Expert Answer:

At times these defects are called thermodynamic defects because the number of these defects depend on the temperature.
All magnetically ordered solids, ferromagnetic and anti-ferromagnetic solids change into paramagnetic at high temperature.This is because of randomization of domains on heating. Each ferromagnetic substance has a characteristic temperature, above which no ferromagnetism is observed. This temperature is called curie temperature.
