Intro
3.5. Density Computations - Metals
Examples
Calculate metal density- calculate the density of a metal from its atomic radius and atomic mass
Radius of a metal atom and metal density- uses the unit cell to determine radius of a lead atom and density of lead

3.14. Crystallographic Planes
Intro
Crystal plane Miller indices- explains the Miller indice notation used in a crystal structure
Miller-Bravais indices: hexagonal structure- determines the four-parameter Miller-Bravais indices for an hexagonal unit cell
(111) Planes in FCC metal- determines how many distinct sets of (111) planes are present in a face-centered cubic metal
