Molar Volume of Sodium
If you assume that an atom is a hard sphere, you can estimate the average volume of space it occupies using basic geometry.
Question
Estimate the volume, V , of a sodium atom ( Na ) using its metallic radius of 186

Isn't the volume of a sphere
4/3(pi)r^{3}? 
yes it is .. can u slove it plz

186 what units? What units do you want the answer?
(4/3)*3.14*186^{3} = ??
