FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to calculate the Avogadro's number using the radius, density and formula weight of Pd metal


Recall that Avogadro's number is given by:


NA = number of atoms1 mol


In this case, we have to find the number of atoms in an FCC crystal and the number of moles present using the provided data


face-centered cubic lattice contains an atom in each of the face of the cube and an atom in each of the corners. It looks like this:
