Crystalline solids: highly regular arrangement of atoms, ions, molecules - periodic (repeating)
Amorphous solids: no repeating pattern, only short range order, extensively disordered - non crystalline (e.g. glasses)

A good vacuum produced in common laboratory apparatus corresponds to 10^-6mm pressure at 25℃. Calculate no. Of molecules per cc at this pressure and temperature.(Ans:-3.2×10^10)
From PV =nRT 1.3 x 10^-9 * 10^-3 = n * 0.0821 * 300 n = 0.0527 x 10^-12 no. of molecules = n x Na => 0.0527 x 10^-12 x 6.023 x 10^23 = > 0.317 x 10^11 or => 3.17 x 10^10
