CHEMISTRY 201X September 17-21, 2007 Practice Problems (45) Polonium adopts a “simple cubic” structure at room temperature and pressure. The unit cell is a cube, side is a = 336.8 pm, and contains Po atoms just at the corners. Vertical direction is parallel to a side of the cubic unit cell ( a ). Vertical direction is parallel to a diagonal of a square face of the cubic unit cell ( 2 a ). Vertical direction is parallel to the body diagonal of the cubic unit cell ( 3 a ). For Cu X-radiation, calculate the angles 2 θ where Bragg reflections would be observed for each set of planes for n = 1, 2, and 3. If the X-ray diffractometer could only observe reflections for 2 θ 90 ° , which reflections would be observed?

Unformatted text preview: lead is 4.950 . If X-rays with = 1.936 are diffracted by this set of planes, calculate the scattering angles 2 at which first-order, second-order, third-order, and fourth-order ( n = 1, 2, 3, 4) will be observed. (47) Braggs equation contains sin , where 2 is the angle between the incident X-ray beam and diffracted X-ray beam. Since sin 1, this places a limit on what can be observed in a crystal. (a) Use the Bragg equation and deduce the limitation on d-spacings between planes of atoms when Cu K X-radiation is used ( = 1.54178 ), when Mo K X-radiation is used ( = 0.71069 )....
