1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The vectors r1 and r2 below represent atomic positions in a crystal. r1 = (n1 + n3)ax + (n2 + n3)ay + n3az r2 = (n1 + n3 + 1/2)ax + (n2 + n3 1/2)ay + (n3 + 1/2)az Assume first that the two vectors above correspond to two different types of atom. Find a set of primitive translation vectors and an appropriate basis to describe this structure. Identify the Bravais lattice type. 2. Relevant equations No equations were given in class or in the text that I can recognize as being useful for this. 3. The attempt at a solution I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to be looking for here. My attempt at a solution for the first primitive translation vectors for r1 is: a1 = n1ax a2 = n2ay a3 = n3a(x + y + z) Am I on the right track? Or am I completely misunderstanding what is being asked?
