1 Intermolecular Forces / Liquids and Solids V. Solids A. Crystal Structures 1. Introduction A crystalline solid is a solid whose component particles are arranged in an orderly, three-dimensional repeating structural pattern. rigid long-range order Positions occupied in a crystalline solid are called lattice points . The array of lattice points is called a ( crystal ) lattice . A unit cell is the basic repeating unit of a lattice. The lattice is composed of repeating unit cells. Below is an example of a two-dimensional lattice. A two-dimensional lattice with the unit cell indicated by the dashed lines. The black dots represent either atoms or molecules. For a two-dimensional lattice, two axes and angle between the axes define a unit cell. Note that axes are vectors – need length and direction to define an axis. See Fig 11.14, Chang, 9 th edition for a three-dimensional lattice and its associated unit cell. For a three-dimensional lattice, three axes and three angles define a unit cell. 2. Types of unit cells There are a total of seven types of unit cells ( see Fig 11.15, Chang, 9 th edition ) We will cover only the cubic unit cell all sides same length and all angles 90°

2 The cubic unit cell There are three types of cubic cells. FOR NOW, ASSUME LATTICE POINTS ARE OCCUPIED BY ATOMS. a. simple cubic (sc) or simple cubic cell (scc) This is, as implied, the simplest arrangement. This is easily pictured by imagining a layer of spheres (baseballs, ping-pong balls, etc.) arranged first in a single layer. These spheres in a single layer are arranged as shown below. Then an identical layer is placed above the first layer with the spheres directly above one another. This

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
