A compound is for

Answer :

The formula can be determined by using the following method

Let the number of atoms of the element N = n


Number of tetravalent voids = 2n


It is given that the atoms of element M occupy 1/3 of the tetrahedral voids.


So that the number of atoms of M = (1/3) × 2n


Ratio of the number of atoms of M and N


M:N =2n/3:n


Multiplying the 3 and divide by n we get


M:N = 2:3


Hence, the formula of the compound is M2N3 .
