Is the 1srt & 2nd questions should be done in that method?? I think that steps are incorrect…

Good question……it really worked for me ………😀😀

• May 28, 2020 at 3:54 pm

Sir the answer for question 1is not true
We have to use a=2√2r
But here u used that a =4r

• May 21, 2020 at 7:01 pm

Good

• May 11, 2020 at 2:02 pm

we should have used a= 2√2 r relation in Q 1 ??? as it is mentioned face centered cubic lattice !
