# Problem: Very small semiconductor crystals composed of approximately 1000 to 100,000 atoms, are called quantum dots. Quantum dots made of the semiconductor CdSe are now being used in electronic reader and tablet displays because they emit light efficiently and in multiple colors depending on dot size. The density of CdSe is 5.82 g/cm3.What is the mass of one 2.5-nm CdSe quantum dot? Assume that the dot is a perfect sphere.

🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Foley's class at UNG.
