Metallic vanadium crystallizes in a body-centered cubic lattice, with one V atom per lattice point. If the edge length of the unit cell is found to be 301 pm, what is the metallic radius of V in pm?  pm

Hallo Jay I am working on it.

For this type of lattice the atoms are in contact along a body diagonal and

Where r is the metallic radius and a is the edge length of the cell. Thus, r= length of the cell. Thus r= 0.433 a

r= 0.433x 301= 130.33 pm
