The ccp lattice is formed by the element Y .The number of octahedral voids generated would be equal to the no of atoms of Y present in it .Since all the octahedral voids are occupied by the atoms of X, the number would also be equal to that of the element Y.Therefore the formula of the compound is XY. how is it?

Expert Answer:


no of octahedral voids = no of particles = Y = all the octahedral voids contains X atoms

so the formula is XY.
