NEET 2013

The number of carbon atoms per unit cell of diamond unit cell is
A
6
B
1
C
4
D
8

Explanation

Total number of carbon atoms per unit cell

= $$8 \times {1 \over 8} + 6 \times {1 \over 2} + 4$$ = 8

NEET 2013

A metal has a fcc lattice. The edge length of the unit cell is 404 pm. The density of the metal is 2.72 g cm$$-$$3. The molar mass of the metal is
(NA Avogadro's constant = 6.02 $$ \times $$ 1023 mol$$-$$1)
A
27 g mol$$-$$1
B
20 g mol$$-$$1
C
40 g mol$$-$$1
D
30 g mol$$-$$1

Explanation

for fcc Z = 4.

d = $${{ZM} \over {{N_A}{a^3}}}$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$ M = $${{d{N_A}{a^3}} \over Z}$$

= $${{2.72 \times 6.023 \times {{10}^{23}} \times {{\left( {404 \times {{10}^{ - 10}}} \right)}^3}} \over 4}$$

= 27 g mol–1

AIPMT 2012 Mains

Structure of a mixed oxide is cubic close packed (ccp). The cubic unit cell of mixed oxide is composed of oxide ions. One fourth of the tetrahedral voids are occupied by divalent metal A and the octahedral voids are cooupied by a monovalent metal B. The formula of the oxide is
A
ABO2
B
A2BO2
C
A2B3O4
D
AB2O2

Explanation

Number of atoms in cubic close packing = 4 = O2-

Number of tetrahedral voids = 2 × N = 2 × 4

Number of A2+ ions = 8 $$ \times $$ $${1 \over 4}$$ = 2

Number of octahedral voids = Number of B+ ions = N = 4

Ratio of ions will be,

O2– : A2+ : B+ = 4 : 2 : 4 = 2 : 1 : 2

Formula of oxide = AB2O2
