NEET Chemistry The Solid State Questions Solved

Assertion : An important feature of Fluorite structures is that cations being large in size occupy FCC

lattice points whereas anions occupy all the tetrahedral voids giving the formula unit AB2(A: cation B: anion).

Reason : There are 6 cations and 12 anions per FCC unit cell of the Fluorite structure.
