Materials Science and Engineering MIME 1650 Lecture 6 2 3 Chapter 3 - Linear Density • Linear Density of Atoms LD = Unit length of direction vector Number of repeat distances Repeat distance: distance between adjacent atoms along the direction. In general LD = 1/r where r is the repeat distance between adjacent atoms 4 Chapter 3 - Planar Density • Planar Density of Atoms PD = area of plane # of atoms centered on a plane* *The sharing of atoms with adjacent unit cells must be considered

Materials Science and Engineering MIME 1650 Lecture 6 3 5 Chapter 3 - Crystallographic Planes We want to examine the atomic packing of crystallographic planes Iron foil can be used as a catalyst. The atomic packing of the exposed planes is important. a) Draw (100) and (111) crystallographic planes for Fe. b) Calculate the planar density for each of these planes. 6 Chapter 3 - Planar Density of (100) Iron Solution: At T < 912 ° C iron has the BCC structure. (100) Radius of iron R = 0.1241 nm R 3 3 4 a = Adapted from Fig. 3.2(c), Callister 7e. 2D repeat unit = Planar Density = a 2 1 atoms 2D repeat unit = nm 2 atoms 12.1 m 2 atoms = 1.2 x 10 19 1 2 R 3 3 4 area 2D repeat unit
