Gallium has a simple cubic unit cell. It has a molar mass of 69.72 g/mol and a density of 5.91 g/cm³. How many atoms are contained within the unit cell?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given data

Gallium forms a simple cubic cell i.e. value of edge length (a) = 2r

Atomic radii of gallium = 135 x 10-10 cm

Molar mass = 69.72 g/mol

Density = 5.91 g/cc

Step 2

The formula for dens...
