Platinum nanoparticles of diameter 2 nm are important
catalysts in carbon monoxide oxidation to carbon
dioxide. Platinum crystallizes in a face-centered cubic
arrangement with an edge length of 3.924 Å. (c) Using your
results from (a) and (b), calculate the percentage of Pt atoms
that are on the surface of a 2.0-nm nanoparticle.
