If a graphene sheet has a width of 1.0 micrometer, how many C6, rings are joined across the sheet?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Number of C6 ring that is joined across the sheet has to be calculated.

Concept introduction:

The angle bounded by the side of the hexagon is 30o.

Therefore,

Explanation

According to the hexagon diagram, distance x has to calculate.

Therefore,

The interior angles in a hexagon are 120o.

To find the Side to side dimension of the planar, first need to know the distance of y in the figure,

Thus, y = x2.

The angle bounded by the side of the hexagon and y is 30o.

Therefore,

Cos 30oyhexagon side y= Cos 30o× hexagon sidey= (0.866) × 139 pmy= (0.866) × 139 pmy= 120
