An element crystallises in a b.c.c lattice with cell edge of 500 pm. The density of the element is 7.5g cm-3. How many atoms are present in 300 g of the element?
An element with molar mass 27 g mol−1 forms a cubic unit cell with edge length 4.05 ✕ 10−8 cm. If its density is 2.7 g cm−3, what is the nature of the cubic unit cell?
How can you determine the atomic mass of an unknown metal if you know its density and the dimension of its unit cell? Explain.
What is the coordination number of atoms:
(a) in a cubic close-packed structure?
(b) in a body-centred cubic structure?
Explain how much portion of an atom located at (i) corner and (ii) body-centre of a cubic unit cell is part of its neighbouring unit cell.
