An element X (mol

Answer :

Given-

• Molar mass= 60 g mol-1


• Density = 6.23 g cm-3


• edge length of the unit cell is 4× 10-8 cm.


Solution:


Mass of the atom in the unit cell,


Then, density of the unit cell =


=


d=


where z is the no. of atoms present in the unit cell, M is the molar mass of the element, a is the edge length of the cube and NA is the Avogadro number.



= 4


Since, there are 4 atoms present in the unit cell it is a fcc or ccp lattice.
