This is a question that is similar as to how Avogadro's number was originally determined.?

The structure of a pure solid can be viewed as spherical atoms stacked neatly into a regular array, & the solid can often be divided into tiny cubes each containing a given # of atoms. For example, a silicon crystal consists of cubes each containing 8 spherical silicon atoms & each cube is 543.2 picometers on a... show more The structure of a pure solid can be viewed as spherical atoms stacked neatly into a regular array, & the solid can often be divided into tiny cubes each containing a given # of atoms. For example, a silicon crystal consists of cubes each containing 8 spherical silicon atoms & each cube is 543.2 picometers on a side. Using this information along with the average molar mass of silicon (28.0854 g/mol) & the density (2.328994 g/ cm^3) determine Avogadro's number.
