Atomic and Ionic Radii (Section)
Tungsten has the highest melting point of any metal in the periodic table: 3422 °C. The distance between W atoms in tungsten metal is 2.74 Å. (a) What is the atomic radius of a tungsten atom in this environment? (This radius is called the metallic radius.) (b) If you put tungsten metal under high pressure, predict what would happen to the distance between W atoms.
