A structure built usingspheres will have some empty, or void, space in it. A measure of void space in a particular structure is thepacking efficiency, defined as the volume occupied by the spheres divided by the total volume of thestructure.Given that a solid crystallizes in a face centered cubic structure that is 3.68 on each side, answer questions(a)-(e). (1 = 1. 10-10m.)(a) How many total atoms are there in each unit cell?
(b) What is the volume of one unit cell in 3?
3(c) Assuming that the atoms are spheres and the radius of each sphere is 1.30 , what is the volume ofone atom in 3
3(d) Therefore, what volume of atoms are in one unit cell?
3(e) Based on your results from parts (b) and (d), what is the packing efficiency of the solid expressed asa percentage?
