As we learnt in

No. of atoms(z) for face centered unit cell -

Lattice points: at corners and face centers of unit cell.

For face centered cubic (FCC), z=4.

- wherein

 

 

 

Number of Y  atoms per unit cell in ccp  lattice (N)=4

number of tetrahedral voids 2N=2\times 4= 8

number of tetrahedral voids occupied by X

    = 2/3^{rd}of \: the\: tetrahedral \: void\: = 2/3\times 8= 16/3

Hence the formula of the compound will be

X_{16/3}Y_{4}= X_{4}Y_{3}

Correct option is 2.


Option 1)

X_{3}Y_{4}

This is an incorrect option.

Option 2)

X_{4}Y_{3}

This is the correct option.

Option 3)

X_{2}Y_{3}

This is an incorrect option.

Option 4)

X_{2}Y

This is an incorrect option.
