Unformatted text preview: 3.3 For this problem, we are asked to calculate the volume of a unit cell of aluminum. Aluminum has an FCC crystal structure {Table 3.1). The FCC unit cell volume may be computed from Equation [3.4) as VC 2 16R3'V'E = (’16)(0.143 x 10'9 mi3-C2 : 5.62 x 10'29 m3 3.10 This problem asks for us to calculate the radius of a vanadium atom.

For SC, ECG, and FCC crystal structures, the respective values of n are 1, 2, and 4, whereas the expressions for a {since VC 2 a3) are 2R, 2R5, and Aim-F3.

This limits the packing efficiency of the atoms, and therefore, the magnitude of the density. 3.51 3.5?
