Atomic packing factor is
  • 1.  Projected area fraction of atoms on a plane
  • 2.  Distance between two adjacent atoms
  • 3.  Volume fraction of atoms in cell
  • 4.  None

Dear student
Please find the solution to the asked query:

Atomic packing fraction is the volume of the atoms in a cell.

Packing fraction = Volume of one sphere/ Volume of the unit cell( a3)

a3 =  Volume of one sphere / Packing fraction

Hence option 3 is correct.
