Name:_________________________ ID Number:___________________ 2 True/False: Answer the following questions T rue or F alse (2 points each): 1._____ The cohesive energy is the energy which enables a liquid to freeze. 2._____ A BCC lattice has a lower packing fraction than an FCC lattice 3._____ The kinetic energy associated with a delocalized electron helps hold together a metallic solid. 4._____ The cohesive energy of a pair of ions is usually larger than the the cohesive energy of a 3D ionic solid containing the same atoms. 5._____ A face-centered cubic (FCC) lattice has ABC stacking of its closest-packed planes, while a hexagonal close-packed (HCP) lattice has AB stacking of its closest-packed planes. Fill in the Blanks: 6. Fill in the blanks in the following calculation of the cohesive energy of an ionic solid (1 point each, 8 points total) [Note: #s are not needed here]: 7. Considering your answer in #6, write out an expression for the Cohesive Energy, U cohesive , of an ionic solid (2 points): Be Gas + Be + Gas + + + O - Gas O Gas Be +2 + Gas Cl - Gas O -2 Solid O -2 + + Be Gas + O Gas Solid + + O -2 Be +2 Be +2 Gas + Be +2 Gas + Be + + + O -2 Gas Gas O - + +
Name:_________________________ ID Number:___________________ 3 Short Answer: 8. Define the Cohesive Energy of a Solid (3 points): 9. Considering the terms in the cohesive energy for ionic, covalent, and metallic bonding, explain why Group IVB elements and Group A transition elements tend to have a significant component of covalent bonding. [Hint: Compare the values of the energy terms on your periodic table] (3 points): 10. A few years ago, Prof. Hales, from the Mathematics Department here at the University of Michigan, found the answer to a problem which mathematicians have been struggling to solve for nearly 400 years.
