HW 5 ENME 382/ENMA 300 Callister 5.5 Below, atomic radius, crystal structure, electronegativity, and the most common valence are tabulated, for several elements; for those that are nonmetals, only atomic radii are indicated. Atomic Crystal Electro- Element Radius (nm) Structure negativity Valence Ni 0.1246 FCC 1.8 +2 C 0.071 H 0.046 O 0.060 Ag 0.1445 FCC 1.9 +1 Al 0.1431 FCC 1.5 +3 Co 0.1253 HCP 1.8 +2 Cr 0.1249 BCC 1.6 +3 Fe 0.1241 BCC 1.8 +2 Pt 0.1387 FCC 2.2 +2 Zn 0.1332 HCP 1.6 +2 Which of these elements would you expect to form the following with nickel: (a) A substitutional solid solution having complete solubility (b) A substitutional solid solution of incomplete solubility (c) An interstitial solid solution 5.12 Some hypothetical alloy is composed of 25 wt% of metal A and 75 wt% of metal B. If the densities of metals A and B are 6.17 and 8.00 g/cm 3 , respectively, whereas their respective atomic weights are 171.3 and 162.0 g/mol, determine whether the crystal structure for this alloy is simple cubic, face-centered cubic, or body-centered cubic.

A commercial aircraft skin material having a density of 2.47 g/cm 3 is desired. Compute the concentration of Li (in wt%) that is required. 5.D2 Gallium arsenide (GaAs) and indium arsenide (InAs) both have the zinc blende crystal structure and are soluble in each other at all concentrations. Determine the concentration in weight percent of InAs that must be added to GaAs to yield a unit cell edge length of 0.5820 nm. The densities of GaAs and InAs are 5.316 and 5.668 g/cm 3 , respectively....
