# NEET Chemistry The Solid State Questions Solved

A solid has a bcc structure. If the distance of closest approach between the two atoms is 1.73Å . The edge length of the cell is:

(a) 200pm

(b) $\sqrt{3}}{\sqrt{2}}$ pm

(c) 142.2 pm

(d) $\sqrt{2}$pm

(a) ratom$\sqrt{3}$/4a; Also closest approach in bcc lattice is 1/2 of body diagonal, i.e, $\sqrt{3}$/4a=1.73Å

or a = 1.73x2/ $\sqrt{3}$=1.996 Å=199.6pm
