A crystalline solid AB has NaCl type structure with radius of B ion is 250 pm. Which of the following cation can be made to slip into tetrahedral site of crystals of A + B ?

(1)

(3)

P + (radius = 180 pm)

R + = (radius = 200 pm)

Sol. Answer (2)

For NaCl type r

r

0.414

250

r + = 0.414 × 250

r + = 103.5

This is radius of void so, the cation which has equal to this radius or smaller to this radius can easily fit into it that is option (2) Q + = 56 pm which is smaller than radius of void thats why it can fit into it.

(2) On increasing pressure the coordination number of solid increases

(3) On increasing temperature the coordination number of solid increases

(4) On increasing pressure the coordination number of solid decreases

Number of carbon atoms per unit cell of diamond unit cell is 8. It has ZnS like structure in which Zn +2 located at half of tetrahedral voids = 4.

S 2 located at ccp

In diamond all carbon replaces Zn +2 and S 2 so, some (C) at half of T.V. = 4 and some (C) at ccp = 4, total = 8.
