Class 12 Chemistry The Solid State Close Packing in One Dimension

Close Packing in One Dimension

  • The only way to arrange spheres in a one dimensional close packed structure is to arrange the spheres in a single row and touching each other.

  • Each sphere is in contact with two of its surrounding atom.
  • The number of nearest surrounding particles is called its coordination number. Therefore in one dimensional close packed arrangement, the coordination number is 2.
