EISCO Crystal Lattice - Graphite - Model Kit
(39) Black Atoms, (46) Medium connectors, (15) Long connectors
A valuable teaching aid for physics and chemistry, this kit is comprised of the necessary materials to make the crystal lattice model of graphite.
Properties of substances as related to crystalline structure are easily visualized from this high quality colorful lattice model. The concept of a unit cell, cohesive forces and the meaning of coordination numbers as well as crystal systems can be explained.
Graphite has a layered, planar structure. In each layer, the carbon atoms are arranged in a honeycomb lattice with separation. The layering contributes to its lower density.
