Problem 28EStructures of Solids (Section)The unit cell of a compound containing strontium, iron, and oxygen is shown here (a) What typeof lattice does this crystal possess (all three lattice vectors are mutually perpendicular) (b)What is the empirical formula Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 2 (a)The given unit cell has the two lattice vectors have same length and all three latticeVectors are mutually perpendicular.Therefore, a = b = / c and = = = 90°Hence, this crystal lattice possesses a tetragonal lattice structure.
