Question

In a solid AB having NaCl structure, A atoms forms cubic unit cell type structure. If all the face centred atoms along one of the axes are removed, then the resultant stoichiometry of the solid is:
  1. AB2
  2. A2B
  3. A4B3
  4. A3B4


Solution

The correct option is D A3B4
In NaCl structure:
Na+ are present in body centre and edge centre.
Cl are present at corners and face centre
(Cl) total 'A' removed =12×2=1
(Na+) total ‘B’ removed = 0
A remaining = 4 – 1 = 3
B remaining = 4
Formula =A3B4
