Question: problem 2 20 points the metal rhodium has an atomic...

Question details

Problem 2 (20 points) The metal Rhodium has an atomic mass of 103, an atomic radius of 0.1345 nm. Using the relationships between unit cell edge a and atomic radius R for metal structures, calculate the density of Rhodium assuming it has a i) simple cubic structure; ii) a BCC structure; and ii) a FCC structure. Which of these structures is consistent with the actual density of 12.42 g/cm3 measured with a bulk piece of rhodium metal.
