Question

# A metal crystallizes in bcc lattice. The percent fraction of edge length not covered by atom is :

A
10.4%
B
13.4%
C
12.4%
D
11.4%

Solution

## The correct option is C $$13.4\%$$In BCC lattice, $$4r = a\sqrt{3}$$Fraction of each edge covered by atoms is $$\dfrac{2r}{a} = \dfrac{a\sqrt{3}}{2a} = 86.6 \%$$Therefore the fraction of edge not covered by atom is $$13.4 \%$$Chemistry
