The Solid State

  • Question 97

    What is possible formula of a compound which is made of two elements P and Q and forms fcc structure. Atoms P occupy corner positions and Q occupy face positions of cube?

    In a fcc unit cell, there are 8 corners and 6 faces. Eight corners contribute 8 x 1/8 = 1 atom
    six faces contribute 6 x 1/2 = 3 atoms.
    So the formula of the compound is PQ
    Question 98

    What is the general structure of ionic solids?

    In ionic solids, generally anions form close-packed structure and cations occupy interstitial sites. example NaCl, KCl. These are ionic solids
    Question 99

    How many octahedral voids are there in 1 mole of a compound having cubic closed packed structure? 

    There are 1 mole of octhahedral voids in every one mole ofthe compound cotaining ccp structure.
    since number of particles present in 1 mole compound =6.022 x 1023 
    we know that number of octahedral voids=number of atoms in structure.
    Question 100

    What is the two-dimentional coordination number of a molecule in square closed packed layer ?

    The coordination number is 4.
