Question: problem 1 considering atoms as rigid spheres with radii equal...

Question details

Problem 1. Considering atoms as rigid spheres with radii equal to a half of the distance between nearest neighbors, calculate and compare the ratios of the volume occupied by atoms to the total volume of a unit cell (i.e., the lattice packing efficiency), for, (a) primitive cubic attice, (b) face centered cubic (fcc), (c) zinc blende (ignoring the difference in atomic radii between anion and cation)
