# Unit Cells

Copper has a unit cell volume of (47.453 A^3) and a face centered unit cell. How would I go about finding the volume of atoms within the unit cell? Would you use Avogadro's # somehow?

1. I don't get the 47.453 A^3 for volume. That seems far too large (of course that depends upon what A stands for).
Whatever the volume, then
V1/3 = length of an edge of the unit cell = a. Then 4r = a(21/2).
When you have found r (radius of the atom), then volume of the atom = (4/3)*pi*r3.

3. I got it thank you!
The A^3 was suppose to stand for ångström
cubed...
