Once the CN of the smaller ion is known, the CN of the larger ion can be determined based on the cation : anion ratio, or the stoichiometry of the compound. ....................................................................................................................................... EXAMPLE 2.6–1 Table 2.6–1 gives the ionic radius ratio range for CN 6 as 0.414 rR limiting values by investigating the critical geometry for CNs of 6 and 8. 0.732. Derive these Solution The geometry for the critical (minimum) r R ratio for CN 6 is shown in Table 2.6–1.
