An estimation of the radius of a lead atom:
a. You are given a cube of lead that is 1.000 em on each side. The density of lead is
11.35 g/cm3. How many atoms of lead are contained in the sample.
b. Atoms are spherical; therefore, the lead atoms in this sample cannot fill all the
available space. As an approximation, assume that 60% of the space of the cube
is filled with spherical lead atoms. Calculate the volume of one lead atom from
this information. From the calculated volume (V), and the formula V = 47tr3/3, estimate the radius (r) of a lead atom.
c. Assume the lead atoms along each side of the cube touch one another. How many atoms lie along one edge of the cube?
