Step 1

Given:

Edge length  = 0.409 nm

Density = 10.5

Calculate the number of atoms in one mole of silver ?

Step 2

Calculation:

Find the volume:

Volume of a cub = a 3

= ( 0.409 nm ) 3

= ( 0.409 nm X 10 -7 cm ) 3

= 6.84 X 10-23 cm 3

Hence, Volume of the cube = 6.84 X 10-23 cm 3

Step 3

Find the density:

Density = mass / volume

Mass = density X volume

= 10.5 g/ cc  X  6.84 X 10-23 cm 3
