###### Face Centered Cubic Unit Cell

Concept #1: Face Centered Cubic Unit Cell

Example #1: Silver adopts a face-centered cubic unit cell structure. Illustrate how the number of atoms per unit cell for the iron atom are obtained.

Practice: Aluminum has a face-centered cubic unit structure and a density of 2.716 g/cm3. Calculate the edge length of the unit cell.

An element crystallizes in a face-centered cubic lattice structure and has a density of 3.16 g/cm3. The edge of its unit cell is 7.49 x 10-8 cm. How many atoms are in each unit cell?

An element crystallizes in a face-centered cubic lattice and has a density of 18.44 g/cm3. The edge of its unit cell is 1.05 x 10-8 cm. Calculate the atomic mass for the element.

Sodium chloride solidifies into a face-centered cubic unit cell with a density of 2.17 g/cm3. What is its volume in cm3
