An element crystallizes in the simple cubic structure.Its density is $8gcm^{-3}$ and its 200g contains $24\times 10^{23}$ atoms.Calculate the edge length.

$\begin{array}{1 1}218pm\\318pm\\618pm\\418pm\end{array} $

$z=1$ for simple cubic
$M = 200g$
$N=24\times 10^{23}$ atoms
$a^3=\large\frac{z\times M}{d\times N}$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{1\times 200}{8\times 24\times 10^{23}}$
$a^3=10.41\times 10^{-24}cm^3$
$a=2.18\times 10^{-8}\times 10^{10}pm$
