### Question Description

## Metallic vanadium crystallizes in a body-centered cubic lattice, with one V atom

Metallic **vanadium** crystallizes in a **body-centered** cubic lattice, with one **V** atom per lattice point. If the metallic radius of **V** is **130** pm, what is the volume of the unit cell in pm3 and in cm3?

## Final Answer

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

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

1.576cm3Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
