Calculate the density of sodium metal in primitive cubic, face-centered
cubic and body-centered cubic crystal structures.

Expert Answer

Step 1


Sodium metal gets crystalized in body-centered cubic lattice and has an edge length (a) of 4.59 Ao

It is assumed that Sodium metal is in primitive cubic lattice. Then density can be calculated as follows,

Number of atoms per unit cell (Z) for primitive cubic lattice is 1.
