Q- **Name the parameters that characterise a unit cell.**

Answer- Edges length (a, b, and c) and angles between edges (α, β, and γ) are the parameters that characterise a unit cell.

### You can understand through this proof

As we know that unit cells are a portion of crystal lattice which leads to crystal structure on repetition.

In it, there are two main parameters that characterize a unit cell. These are as follows:

- Edges length (a, b, and c)
- Engles between edges (α, β, and γ)

Therefore, the final answer is: **Edges length (a, b, and c) and angles between edges (α, β, and γ) are the parameters that characterise a unit cell.**

### What are the parameters that Characterise a unit cell?

There are two main parameters that characterise a unit cell. So, the first one is the Edges length which is a, b, and c. The second one is the angle between edges that are alpha (α), Beta (β), and Gamma (γ).

### Name the two parameters that characterise a unit cell

The two parameters that characterize a unit cell are the edges length and the angle between edges. The Edges length are a, b and c whereas the angles between edges are alpha (α), Beta (β), and Gamma (γ).
