Homework Help: Powder diffractogram of copper

  1. May 15, 2013 #1
    Hi everyone

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I want to make a powder diffractogram of copper. Where do I expect the first five intensity maximums when the used wavelength is lambda=0,711 *10^-10 m

    2. Relevant equations
    Bragg equation
    2d sin(omega)=m*lambda

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I think coppers structure is fcc but I have a problem finding my distance between the lattice planes because I don't know on which planes the scattering will take place.

    Thanks for your help
