BUCKYBALL. .....THAT'S FULLERENCE

U all know the No. Of five member rings & six member rings in fullerence that is 12 & 20 respectively. But have u ever tried to find that how it came. ...

...Answer -observe the structure of fullerence. Each C atom contributs it ' 2/3 part in two six member rings. & remaining 1 / 3part is in the five member ring so each 6 member ring is made up of net 2 C atoms & five member ring is made up of net 5 / 3 C atoms. Out of 60 C atoms net 40 atoms forms six member rings.& remaining 20 atoms form five member rings. ...so

NO. Of 6 member rings = 40 / 2 = 20 & NO. Of five member rings = 20 divided by 5 / 3 = 12. ..
