two differences between tetrahedral void and octahedral void?
Following are the differences between tetrahedral voids and octahedral voids
|Tetrahedral voids||Octahedral Voids|
|A void surrounded by 4 spheres is called a tetrahedral void.||A void surrounded by 6 spheres is called an octahedral void.|
|In a solid, |
Number of tetrahedral voids = 2 × Number of close-packed particles
In a solid,
Number of octahedral voids = Number of close-packed particles
Figure 1 represents a tetrahedral void and figure 2 represents an octahedral void.
