Class 12 Chemistry The Solid State Efficiency of Packing in Body Centered Cubic Structures

Efficiency of Packing in Body Centered Cubic Structures

 

The length of the body diagonal c = 4r, where r is the radius of the sphere as all the spheres along the diagonal touch each other. Therefore,

 

Packing efficiency = (Volume occupied by two spheres in the unit cell X 100)/( Total volume of the unit cell)
