NEET Chemistry The Solid State Questions Solved


A metallic elements exists as a cubic lattice. Each edge of the unit cell is 2.88Å. The density of the metal is 7.20 g cm–3. How many unit cells will be present in 100 gm of the metal.

(1) 5.82 × 1023

(2) 6.33 × 1023

(3) 7.49 × 1024

(4) 6.9 × 1024

(1) The volume of unit cell (V) = a3 = (2.88Å)3 = 23.9×1024cm3

Volume of 100 g of the metal = MassDensity=1007.20=13.9cm2

Number of unit cells in this volume = 13.9cm323.9×1024cm3=5.82×1023
