Potassium bromide, KBr, crystallizes like NaCl in a face centered cubic lattice. The ionic radius of K+ is 133 pm and the ionic radius of Br- is 195 pm. Assuming that all Br- ions are positioned in the face and corners of the unit cell, while the K+ ions are positioned along the edge alternating between anions, calculate the length of a unit cell edge.
