Answer : $3.09 \times 10^{22}$
Explanation :
No of atoms per unit $=8 \times \large\frac{1}{8}+\normalsize 1=2$
No of atoms is 4.0 g of potassium $\;=\large\frac{4}{39} \times \normalsize 6.023 \times \normalsize10^{23}$
No of unit cells in 4.0 g of potassium $\;=\large\frac{4}{39} \times \large\frac{6.023 \times 10^{23}}{2} $= $3.09 \times 10^{22}$
