1 mole contains 6.023 ×1023 atoms

0.2 mole contains 0.2 × 6.023 ×1023 atoms

( 1unit cell / 2 atoms ) × 0.2 × 6.023 × 1023

6.023 ×1022 unit cells

a) MN

b) M3N

c) MN3

if the total number of M atoms is n, then the number of tetrahedral voids

=2n

given that (1/3)rd of tetrahedral voids are occupied i.e., (1/3)x2n are occupied i.e., by N atoms

∴ M:N ⇒ n : (2/3) n

1 : (2/3)

3 : 2 ⇒ M3 N2

**10. The composition of a sample of wurtzite is Fe0.93 O1.00 what % of Iron present in the form of Fe3+?**

a) 16.05%

b) 15.05%

c) 18.05%

d) 17.05%

Solution

let

the number of Fe2+ ions in the crystal be *x*

the number of Fe3+ ions in the crystal be *y*

total number of Fe2+ and Fe3+ ions is

x + y

given that x + y = 0.93

the total charge =0

x (2+) + (0.93 –x) (+ 3) −2 = 0

2x + 2.97 −3x −2 = 0

x = 0.79

Percentage of Fe3+

= [ ( 0.93 −0.79) / (0.93) ] 100 = 15.05%

a) 8

b) 2

c) 6

d) 4

Solution

rC+/ rA- = 0.98 ×10−10 / 1.81 ×10−10 = 0.54

it is in the range of 0. 414 - 0.732 , hence the coordination number of each ion is 6

a) 400pm

b) 800pm

c) √3 x100pm

Solution

√3 a = rCs+ + 2rCl- + rCs+

(√3/2) a = ( rCl- + rCs+)

(√3/2) x 400 = inter ionic distance

**13. A solid compound XY has NaCl structure. if the radius of the cation is 100pm , the radius of the anion will be**

a) (100/0.414)

b) (0.732/100)

c) 100x0.414

d) (0.414 / 100)
