CaTiO3, a perovskite, has the structure below. (a) If the density of the solid is 4.10 g/cm3, what is the length of a side of the unit cell? (b) Calculate the radius of the Ti4+ ion in the center of the unit cell. How well does your calculation agree with a literature value of 75 pm? Unit cell of the perovskite CaTiO3 A sample of perovskite, СаТiO3 FIGURE 7.11 Relative sizes of some common ions. Rodii are given in picometers (1 pm 1 × 10‒12 m). (Data taken from J. Emsley, The Elements, Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1998, 3rd edition.)
