Textbook Problem

Vanadium metal has a density of 6.11 g/cm3. Assuming the vanadium atomic radius is 132 pm, is the vanadium unit cell primitive cubic, body-centered cubic, or face-centered cubic?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The unit cell of vanadium has to be identified.

Concept introduction:

The radius of the atom is calculated using following formula,

a=V3a=numberofatoms3×md3

Explanation

  a=V3a=numberofatoms3×md3a=numberofatoms3×50.9415g/mol6.11g/cm3×6.023×1023atoms/mol3a=numberofatoms3×2
