### AIPMT 2007

The fraction of total volume occupied by the atoms present in a simple cube is
A
$${\pi \over {3\sqrt 2 }}$$
B
$${\pi \over {4\sqrt 2 }}$$
C
$${\pi \over 4}$$
D
$${\pi \over 6}$$

## Explanation

The maximum properties of the available volume which may be filled by hard sphere in simple cubic arrangement is $${\pi \over 6}$$ or 0.52.

### AIPMT 2006

CsBr crystallises in a body centered cubic lattice. The unit cell length is 436.6 pm. Given that the atomic mass of Cs = 133 and that of Br = 80 amu and Avogadro number being 6.02 $$\times$$ 1023 mol$$-$$1, the density of CsBr is
A
4.25 g/cm3
B
42.5 g/cm3
C
0.425 g/cm3
D
8.25 g/cm3

## Explanation

Density of CsBr = $${{Z \times M} \over {V \times {N_A}}}$$

= $${{1 \times 213} \over {{{\left( {436.6 \times {{10}^{ - 10}}} \right)}^3} \times 6.023 \times {{10}^{23}}}}$$

= 4.25 g/cm3

### AIPMT 2006

The appearance of colour in solid alkali metal halides is generally due to
A
interstitial positions
B
F.-centres
C
Schottky defect
D
Frenkel defect

## Explanation

F-centres are the sites where anions are missing and instead electrons are present. They are responsible for colours.
