If the gold atoms were spheres as modeled by the fcc structure, what is the atomic radius? Solution Assume the radius of gold spheres to be r , and the edge of the face centered unit cell to be a . There are four gold (atomic mass 197.0, Avogadro's number = 6.023x10 23 ) atoms per unit cell, thus d = 4 * 197.0 / (6.023x10 23 * a 3 ) = 19.3 g / cm 3 a = 4.0774*10 -8 cm = 2 * 2 1/2 r r = 1.442 *10 -8 cm Please work out these formulas and numbers yourself.

The mass of the unit cell will be equal to the number of atoms in the unit cell times the mass of a single atom. We saw earlier that simple cubic structures have 1 atom per unit cell; body-centered have 2 atoms per unit cell and face-centered have 4 atoms per unit cell. The mass of a single atom can be determined from the atomic weight of the atom. Recall that the atomic weight is the weight in grams of 1 mole of the substance and that 1 mole of a substance contains 6.022 × 10 23 atoms. Putting these ideas together, we get the following formula for the density of a solid: ( 29 23 solid 3 # atoms per unit cell AW/6.022 10 d a p = ....
