Question

A binary solid $$(A^{+}B^{-})$$ has a rock salt structure. If the edge length is $$400$$ pm and radius of cation is $$75$$ pm, the radius of anion is:


A
100 pm
loader
B
125 pm
loader
C
250 pm
loader
D
325 pm
loader

Solution

The correct option is B $$125$$ pm
Edge length in a rock salt structure $$\Rightarrow a = 2\ \left( { r }_{ + }+{ r }_{ - } \right) $$
  
$$2(75 + r_{-})=400\ pm \Rightarrow r_-=125\ pm$$
