Expert Answer:

An element crystallises in a structure having a fcc unit cell of an edge 200 pm. Calculate its density if 200 g of this element contain 24 x 1023atoms.

Solution:

Length of edge, a = 200 pm = 200 x 10-12 m = 200 x 10-10 cm

Volume of unit cell = (200 x 10-10)3 = 8 x 10-24 cm3

Mass of unit cell = No.of atom is unit cell x mass of each atom

The element has fcc arrangement, the number of atom perunit cell z = 4
