Approximately what is the radius of a copper atom? Is it 1×10-15 m, 1×10-12 m, 1×10-10 m, 1×10-8 m, or 1×10-6 m ?

The approximate radius of a copper atom is 1×10-8 m.

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1: Given data and concept

The given atom is the copper atom.

We need to find the radius for the copper atom and that too in the proximity of the given values.

Step 2: Radius of a copper atom

The radius of a copper atom can be calculated as,

128 pm=128 pm.1 pm×1 m1012 pm=1.28×10-10 m

Step 3: Determining the approximate radius of a copper atom

From equation (I), the approximate radius of a copper atom can be calculated as,

1.28×10-10 m1×10-10 m

Thus, the approximate radius is 1×10-10 m.
