Test: Packing Crystals - Question 1

Only One Option Correct Type
This section contains 11 multiple choice questions. Each question has four choices (a), (b), (c) and (d), out of which ONLY ONE is correct.

Q.

CsCI crystallises in a cube that has CP at each corner and Cs+ at the centre of the unit cell. If  rCs = 169 pm and rcl- =181 pm, then edge length of the cube is 

Detailed Solution for Test: Packing Crystals - Question 1

(d) CsCI has bcc structure.
Closest dista nce between Cs+ and Cl- is the sum of radii of Cs+ and CI- = 169 + 181 = 350 pm

Cubic diagonal = √3 a

Closest distance is one-half of the cubic diagonal

Test: Packing Crystals - Question 2

A mineral having the formula AB2 crystallises in the cubic closest - packed lattice with the A-atoms occupying the lattice points. Fraction of the tetrahedral sites occupied by 6-atoms is

Detailed Solution for Test: Packing Crystals - Question 2

(d) ABcrystallises as cubic close packed (ccp).

Thus, A2+ is surrounded by eight B- and B- is surrounded by four A2+ .

Thus, coordinatio n number of A2+ = B

coordination number of B- = 4

Number of atoms in tetrahedral in small cube of unit cell of atom B = 4

Thus, fraction occupied = 4/4 = 1 (100%)

Test: Packing Crystals - Question 3

Silver metal crystallises in a cubic closest packed arrangement with edge length 407 pm. Thus, radius of the silver atom is

Detailed Solution for Test: Packing Crystals - Question 3

(c)

AB = a, AC = a

BC2 = AB2 + AC2 =2a2

Radius =r

then BC = CD + DE + EB = r + 2r + r = 4r 

∴ 16r2 = 2a2

Test: Packing Crystals - Question 4

What is the formula of a magnetic oxide of cobalt used in recording tapes that crystallises with cobalt atoms occupying one-eighth of the tetrahedral holes and one-half of the octahedral holes in a closest packed array of oxide ions?

Detailed Solution for Test: Packing Crystals - Question 4

(c)

Tetrahedral holes = 8, Octahedral holes = 4 Cobalt atoms = 8/8 =1

Oxide ions = 4/2 =2

Thus, formula is CoO2

Test: Packing Crystals - Question 5

Detailed Solution for Test: Packing Crystals - Question 5

(b) Unit cell of fee is divided into eight small cubes. Each cube has four atoms at alternate positions. When joined to each other, they make a regular tetrahedron.
Thus, number of tetrahedral void in small cube = 1 and in eight cubes, voids = 8.

Note  If number of atoms in a cube = N, then, number of octahedral voids = N and number of tetrahedral voids = 2N

Test: Packing Crystals - Question 6

or cubic closest packed (ccp)

z = number of atoms in unit cell.

Test: Packing Crystals - Question 7

Coordination numbers in a square close packed structure and hexagonal close packed structure respectively, are

Detailed Solution for Test: Packing Crystals - Question 7

(c) Close packing in two-dimensions can be Type I A A A ...... ty p e The second row may be ^ placed in contact with the first one such that the spheres of A the second row are exactly . above those of the first row.
The spheres of the two rows A are aligned horizontally as well as vertically. In this arrangement, each sphere is in contact with four of its neighbours.
Thus, its coordination number = 4 and is called square close packing in two-dimensions.
Atom A (•) is in contact with four others.

Type II ABAB... type The second row may be placed above the first in a staggered manner such that its spheres fit in the depressions of the first row.
First row arrangement: A type Second row arrangement: 8 type Third row arrangement: A type and so on There is less free space and packing is more efficient than the square close packing. Each sphere is in contact with six of its neighbours and coordination number = 6 in two-dimensions. It is called two dimensional hexagonal close-packing. Voids formed in this case are triangular in shape. If the apex of the triangles downward in the first row, it is upward in the second row.

How many octahedral voids are formed in one unit cell of a hep or ccp lattice?


Detailed Solution for Test: Packing Crystals - Question 21

In fee or hep lattice, body centre is surrounded by six atoms on face centres. If these face centres are joined, one octahedron is formed.

Thus, number of octahedral void in the body centre of the cube = 1 There is also one octahedral void at the centre of each of the 12 edges. It is surrounded by six atoms, three belonging to the same unit cell and three belonging to the two adjacent unit cells.

Each edge of the cube is shared between four adjacent unit cells,
