Answer : 56
Explanation :
Here , $\;SiO_{2}\;$ and $\;H_{2}O\;$ do net carry any charge . The charge present in $\;AlO_{2}\;$ unit is -1 (+3 on Al and -4 on two O - atoms) . Thus negative charge present on 56 $\;AlO_{2}\; $ units is -56 . Therefore , $\;56 Na^{+}\;$ ions are present in one molecule of faujasite
