# An element with molar mass 2.7×10-2 kg mol-1 forms a cubic unit cell with edge length 405 pm. If its density is 2.7×103 kg m-3, what is the nature of the cubic unit cell?

Given information:-

Molar mass of the element = 2.7×10-2 kg mol-1

Edge length, a = 405 pm

Density, d = 2.7×103 kg m-3

Using the formula, d

Putting the values given at their appropriate place, we get

= 3.99 which is approximately equal to 4

Therefore, it is an fcc unit cell.
