Copper has density of 8.94 and crystallizes with the face-centered cubic unit cell. Calculate the radius of a copper atom.

  • Chemistry -

    There are 4 atoms to the unit cell so the mass of a unit cell is
    4*atomic mass Cu/6.02E23 = ?
    density = mass/volume
    Substitute mass and density and solve for volume = ?
    V1/3 = edge length = a
    4r = a*21/2
    Solve for r. My periodic table says Cu is 1.28 angstroms.
