Which of the following lattice has the highest packing efficiency? (i) simple cubic (ii) bodycentred (iii) hexagonal close packing.

Packing efficiency of all these kind of arrangements is given as follows. (i) Simple cubic :- Its packing efficiency is 52% . (ii) Body centred cubic :- Its packing efficiency is 68%. (iii) Hexagonal close packing:- Its packing efficiency is 74% . Conclusion :- From the above data we can conclude that hexagonal close packed

Why ortho-nitrophenol is more acidic than ortho-methoxy phenol ?

To answer this we have to see the reactive nature of phenol and the substituents attached to it. Acidic behavior of phenol depends on the fact that how easily it can loose a proton and make phenoxide ion which is stabilized by resonance. The methoxy group being electron donating group increases the electron density of
