49 Concept Check 3.1 Question: What is the difference between crystal structure and crystal system? Answer: A crystal structure is described by both the geometry of, and atomic arrangements within, the unit cell, whereas a crystal system is described only in terms of the unit cell geometry. For example, face-centered cubic and body-centered cubic are crystal structures that belong to the cubic crystal system.

69 Concept Check 3.2 Question: For cubic crystals, as values of the planar indices h, k, and l increase, does the distance between adjacent and parallel planes (i.e., the interplanar spacing) increase or decrease? Why? Answer: The interplanar spacing between adjacent and parallel planes

Unformatted text preview: decreases as the values of h , k , and l increase. As values of the planar indices increase, the magnitude of the denominator in Equation 3.14 increases, with the result that the interplanar spacing ( d hkl ) decreases. 72 Concept Check 3.3 Question: Do noncrystalline materials display the phenomenon of allotropy (or polymorphism)? Why or why not? Answer: Noncrystalline materials do not display the phenomenon of allotropy; since a noncrystalline material does not have a defined crystal structure, it cannot have more than one crystal structure, which is the definition of allotropy....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
