What is the volume of the atom of an element that crystallizes as a body-centered cube if the volume of the unit cell is 1.97 x 10-22 cm3 ?

volume of the unit cell= 1.97* 10 ^-22 cm3

total number of atoms in body centred cube is 2

in body centred lattice 68% is occupied space

so occupied volume= 1.34 * 10^-22 cm3

this volume is occupied by two atoms 

so volume of one atom=  6.698 * 10^-23 cm3

regarding any clarification let me know.
