Solve the following problems


1. For both of the face-centered cubic (FCC) and the body-centered cubic (BCC)
crystal structures, if a is the cube edge length and R is the atomic radius:
Derive a relationship between a and R
What is the coordination number of them? Explain?
Calculate the atomic packing factor (APF)
2. Calculate the radius of a tantalum atom, given that Ta has a BCC crystal structure,
a density of 16.6 g/cm3, and an atomic weight of 180.9 g/mol.
3. Titanium has an HCP crystal structure, a density of 4.51 g/cm3, and an atomic
weight of 47.9 g/mol.
What is the volume of its unit cell in cubic meters?
If the c/a ratio is 1.58, compute the values of c and a.
4. Niobium has an atomic radius of 0.1430 nm, a density of 8.57 g/cm3, and an
atomic weight of 92.91 g/mol. Determine whether it has an FCC or BCC crystal
structure.
