Q. 15

An element crysta

Answer :


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,
