2 Physics and MeasurementSOLUTIONS TO PROBLEMSSection 1.1Standards of Length, Mass, and TimeNo problems in this sectionSection 1.2Matter and Model-BuildingP1.1From the figure, we may see that the spacing between diagonal planes is half the distance betweendiagonally adjacent atoms on a flat plane. This diagonal distance may be obtained from thePythagorean theorem, LLLdiag=+22. Thus, since the atoms are separated by a distanceL=0200. nm, the diagonal planes are separated by 120141+=nm.Section 1.3Density and Atomic Mass*P1.2Modeling the Earth as a sphere, we find its volume as 43436 37 101 08 10363213ππr=×=×..m mej.
