·Use the guide at left and place four colorless spheres in the first layer (1) at the corners for z=0.

·Place one colorless sphere in the second layer (2) on the center rod for z=0.5

·Construct the z=1 layer.

 Group 2.Extended Structure

  • Using template F, construct an extended body-centered cubic structure.
  • Insert rods in every hole of the template/block.
  • Using the guide which follows, place colorless spheres for z=0 on every rod labeled 1.
  • For z=0.5 place colorless spheres on each rod labeled 2.
  • Complete the z=1 layer and then place another two layers on top.
  • Face-Centered Cubic (FCC) Structure

Team C

Group 1. Single Unit Cell

·Construct a single face-centered cubic cell using template C, colorless spheres and the layering as illustrated. Only put rods and spheres on one of the squares defined by the internal lines.



Group 2. Extended Structure

·Construct an extended face-centered cubic structure using template C (You can find instructions on how to do it in the manual that comes with the kit.)


3. Close-Packing: Sphere Packing&Metallic Elements

Team D

Group 1. Construct the hexagonal close-packing unit cell (use the one requiring the C6 template)

Group 2. Construct the cubic close-packing unit cell (use the one requiring the C6 template)

Team E

Group 1. Add a 2' layer on top of the existing structure.

Group 2. Add a 2' layer on top of the existing structure.

Team F

Using only the shaded portion on the template, construct the face-centered cubic unit cell which uses the C4 template.

Compare the structures of the face-centered cubic unit cell made on the C4 template to that made on the C6 template.

4. interstitial sites and coordination number (cn)

Team a

Group 1 - Construct CN 8, CN 6 and CN 4 (using the C4 template).

Group 2 - Construct CN 6, CN 4 (body diagonal) (using the C6 template).

5. ionic compounds

Now we will look at some real ionic compounds which crystallize in different cubic unit cells. We will use the models to determine the stoichiometry ( atom-to-atom ratios) for a formula unit.

Team B

Cesium Chloride

·Construct a model of cesium chloride on template A. This time use colorless spheres as layers 1 and 1' and the green spheres for layer 2.

·Start with the shaded area and then work your way outward to an extended structure. Consider both simple and extended structures when answering the questions which follow.


Team c

Fluorite: calcium fluoride

·Construct a model of fluorite, which is calcium fluoride, on template E.

·Green spheres will be used for layers 1, 3, and 1' while colorless spheres go on layers 2 and 4.

·Finish with a 1' layer on top. Build the structure by placing rods in all 13 holes in the area enclosed by the internal line.


Team d

Lithium nitride

·Use the l template and insert 6 rods in the parallelogram portion of the dotted lines.

·Construct the pattern shown below. be sure to include a z=1 layer. 1 is a green sphere while 1 and 2 are blue spheres. The 0 Indicates a 4.0 mm spacer tube; the 2 Is an 18.6 mm spacer.

Teams e and f

Zinc blende and wurtzite: zinc sulfide

Team E. Zinc Blende: Use template D to construct the crystal pattern illustrated below. Numbers 2 and 4 are blue spheres while 1 and 3 are colorless spheres and 4 is a 16.1 mm spacer.

Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
is it a question of log

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
