Solid State Modeling CH102, Lab 6 Goals : Explore unit cell stoichiometry to visualize the arrangement of atoms and ions in common solid state structures. To gain a working knowledge of unit cells, packing efficiency and coordination numbers. Safety : No chemicals will be used. Please wear proper attire and safety glasses. Waste : No waste will be generated in this lab.
