3.50 This problem asks that we draw (01 1 1) and (2 1 1 0) planes within hexagonal unit cells. For (01 1 1) the reciprocals of h, k, i, and l are, respectively, ∞, 1, –1, and 1; thus, this plane is parallel to the a1 axis, and intersects the a2 axis at a, the a3 axis at –a, and the z-axis at c. The plane having these intersections is shown in the figure below

For (2 1 1 0) the reciprocals of h, k, i, and l are, respectively, 1/2, –1, –1, and ∞; thus, this plane is parallel to the c axis, and intersects the a1 axis at a/2, the a2 axis at –a, and the a3 axis at –a. The plane having these intersections is shown in the figure below.
