# 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.(E) If you wanted to make one 6.5-nm dot from multiple 2.5-nm dots, how many 2.5-nm dots would you need,How many CdSe formula units in part E would be left over, if any?

###### FREE Expert Solution

From part b: 2.5 nm dots → 150 CdSe molecules

From part d: 6.5 nm dots → 2631 CdSe molecules
