Hey folks

ZnS has a ccp structure with S2- ions forming FCC lattice with Zn2+ ions at half the tetrahedral voids

Attached is a table showing no. of nearest neighbours and their distance for an S2- ion

'a' is edge length of the unit cell

I want to know how the distance to the 3rd & 5th nearest ion is √11a/4 & √19a/11, i.e how to prove this.

Thanks ... any help is appreciated
