- Packing structures of common ionic salts include FCC and BCC.
- The density of a crystal is inversely related to the equilibrium constant.
- The dissociation energy of a salt is large when the equilibrium separation distance is small.
- The densities and equilibrium radii for common salts (FCC) are nearly the same.
body-centered cubic (BCC)
crystal structure in which an ion is surrounded by eight nearest neighbors located at the corners of a unit cell
face-centered cubic (FCC)
crystal structure in which an ion is surrounded by six nearest neighbors located at the faces at the faces of a unit cell
regular array or arrangement of atoms into a crystal structure
experimental parameter associated with a repulsive force between ions brought so close together that the exclusion principle is important
basic crystal structure in which each ion is located at the nodes of a three-dimensional grid
