The Space Lattice and Unit Cells
Atoms, arranged in repetitive 3-Dimensional pattern,in long range order (LRO) give rise to
Properties of solids depends upon crystal structureand bonding force.
An imaginary network of lines, with atoms atintersection of lines, representing the arrangement of atoms is called
Unit CellSpace Lattice
Unit cellis that block of atoms which repeats itself to form space lattice.
Materials arranged in shortrange order are calledamorphous materials.
