A particular metal has a face centered cubic structure. If it has a volume of 8.73 x 10-23 cm3 and a density of 4.97 g/cm3, what is the metal? (enter chemical symbol – not the entire name)


Expert Answer

Step 1

The molar mass of the given metal (M) is calculated using equation (1) in which d is the density of metal, a3 is the volume of a unit cell, Z is the number of atoms per unit ce...
