Question details

Looking at the crystal structures, determine the relationship between a and r for :

  1. simple cubic (SC) unit cell?   _____a=2r_________
  2. body-centered cubic (BCC) unit cell?   ____a=sqrt(3/16)*r____________
  3. face-centered cubic (FCC) unit cell?   _________sqrt(8)*r_______

What is the total volume of each structure (ignoring the atoms)?   ________________

For each crystal structure, what is the volume of the cell taken up by atoms?

  1. simple cubic (SC) unit cell?   ________________
  2. body-centered cubic (BCC) unit cell?   ________________
  3. face-centered cubic (FCC) unit cell?   ________________

Determine the atomic packing factor (APF) for each crystal structure.

  1. simple cubic (SC) unit cell?   ________________
  2. body-centered cubic (BCC) unit cell?   ________________
  3. face-centered cubic (FCC) unit cell?   ________________

Group’s assigned structure (circle one):   SC                BCC                     FCC

What is the linear density in the [0 1 1] direction for your group’s assigned crystal structure?   (show work below)
