You are conducting experiments with your x-ray diffractometer.
(a) A specimen of molybdenum is exposed to a beam of monochromatic x-rays of wavelength set by the Kα line of silver. Calculate the value of the smallest Bragg angle, θhkl, at which you can expect to observe reflections from the molybdenum specimen.
λKα of Mo = 0.721 Å
lattice constant of Mo, a = 3.15 Å
λKα of Ag = 0.561 Å
lattice constant of Ag, a = 4.09 Å
