Edge length = 300pm = 300×10-8 cm
Density = 10.8gcm-3
To find: number of atoms in 108 g of the element.
Volume of a unit cell = (edge length)3
= (300×10-8 cm)3
= 2.7×10-23 cm3
Volume of the given 108 g of unit cell
The number of unit cells is
For one FCC unit cell the number of atoms are 4, thus for the given weight of substance, the number of atoms is,
There are present in 108 g of the given substance.
