#5 | Simple Cubic Unit Cell: Coordination Number
#10 | FCC Unit Cell: Coordination Number
#15 | Tetrahedral Voids
#16 | Octahedral Voids
#17 | Position of Tetrahedral Voids in FCC
#18 | Position of Octahedral Voids in FCC
#19 | Hexagonal Primitive (HP) Unit Cell
#22 | Coordination Number of HP Unit Cel
#23 | Radius Ratio

Concept Questions :-

Voids and radius ratio/coordination number

(4) We know that for the NaCl structure

radius of cation/radius of anion = 0.414; rA+rB=0.414; rB=rA+0.414=1200.414=290pm
