Textbook Problem

Estimate the number of atoms in 1 cm5 of a solid. (Note that the diameter of an atom is about 10−10 m.)

To determine
The number of atoms in 1cm3 of a solid.

Explanation

Given Info: The diameter of each atom is 1×1010m.

Explanation:

The formula to calculate the volume of each atom is,

Vatom=43πr3

Here,

Vatom is volume of each atom

r is radius of each atom

Substitute 0.5×1010m for r to find (Vatom).

V=43π(0.5×1010m)3=0.52×1030m31030m3

Thus, the volume of each atom (Vatom) is 1030m3
