Explanation & Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

the volume of the unit cell is

r*2= diameter

volume =diameter^3

diameter=260pm

260^3=17576000pm3

in cm3=1 cubic meter is equal to 1000000 cm^3, or 1.0E+36 cubic pm

17576000pm3=?

17576000/1000000

1.576cm3

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
