Best Answer

p = n x Mr / Vc x NA

where n is the atoms/unit cell e.g. fcc packing n = 4 and for bcc packing n = 2

Mr is the Atomic Mass in g/mol

Vc is the volume/unit cell cm3 = a3 where a can be found by the radius of the atom and the packing used. e.g in bcc packing it is "a = 4r/1.732" . In Fcc packing it is "a= sin (4r)" or "a = cos (4r)"

NA is avorgados constant, = 6.023 x1023

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials
