MATERIALS AND PACKING

## Crystal Structure of the material

is the manner in which atoms, ions,
or molecules are spatially arranged.

## A crystalline material is one

in which the atoms are situated
in a repeating or periodic array
over large atomic distances.

MATERIALS AND PACKING
Crystalline materials...
• atoms pack in periodic, 3D arrays
• typical of: -metals
-many ceramics
-some polymers crystalline SiO2

Noncrystalline materials...
• atoms have no periodic packing
• occurs for: -complex structures
-rapid cooling

When describing crystalline structures, atoms (or ions) are thought
of as being solid spheres having well-defined diameters.

## This is termed the atomic hard sphere model in which spheres

representing nearest-neighbor atoms touch one another.
CRYSTAL SYSTEM
Unit cell
 the basic structural unit of a crystal structure
 generally defined in terms of atom (or ion) positions within a
parallelepiped volume.

Crystal system.
 A scheme by which crystal structures are classified according to
unit cell geometry.
 This geometry is specified in terms of the relationships between
edge lengths and interaxial angles.
 There are seven different crystal systems.

SAMPLE PROBLEM 01
Palladium crystallizes in a face-centered cubic unit cell.
Its density is 12.023 g/cm3. Calculate the atomic radius

4
A face-centered unit cell has an atom in the
middle of each face of the cube. The square
represents one face of a face-centered cube:
Solution:
1) Calculate the average mass of one atom of Pd:
106.42 g mol¯1 ÷ 6.022 x 1023 atoms mol¯1
= 1.767187 x 10¯22 g/atom
2) Calculate the mass of the 4 palladium atoms in the face-centered
cubic unit cell:
1.767187 x 10¯22 g/atom times 4 atoms/unit cell
= 7.068748 x 10¯22 g/unit cell
3) Use density to get the volume of the unit cell:
7.068748 x 10¯22 g ÷ 12.023 g/cm3
= 5.8793545 x 10¯23 cm3
4
Solution:
4) Determine the edge length of the unit cell:

## [cube root of] 5.8793545 x 10¯23 cm3

= 3.88845 x 10¯8 cm

## 5) Determine the atomic radius:

= 3.88845 x 10¯8 cm

r = d ÷ 2(√2)
r = 1.3748 x 10¯8 cm

the unit cell is body-centered cubic.
Tantalum has a density of 16.69 g/cm3
(a) calculate the mass of a tantalum atom.
(b) Calculate the atomic weight of tantalum in g/mol

4
Solution:

1) Convert pm to cm:
330.6 pm x 1 cm/1010 pm
= 330.6 x 10¯10 cm = 3.306 x 10¯8 cm

## 2) Calculate the volume of the unit cell:

(3.306 x 10¯8 cm)3 = 3.6133 x 10¯23 cm3

## 3) Calculate mass of the 2 tantalum atoms in the body-

centered cubic unit cell:
16.69 g/cm3 times 3.6133 x 10¯23 cm3 = 6.0307 x 10¯22 g

## 4) The mass of one atom of Ta:

6.0307 x 10¯22 g / 2 = 3.015 x 10¯22 g

## 5) The atomic weight of Ta in g/mol:

3.015 x 10¯22 g times 6.022 x 1023 mol¯1 = 181.6 g/mol
