Question: Due to frenkel defect the density of ionic solid ___ , select from the below options
c. Does Not Change
d. Change Depends on Crystal Structure
The properties of being clear and bright make a diamond a gemstone.
Due to frenkel defect the density of ionic solid increases or decreases?
Answer: Due to the Frenkel defect, the density of ionic solids does not change as it involves only the migration of the ions within the crystal, thus preserving both the volume and mass. Due to the Schottky defect, the density of ionic solids decreases.
