How to Calculate and Solve for Hexagonal Crystals | Crystal Structures

The image above represents hexagonal crystals. To calculate hexagonal crystals, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are Miller Index (h)Â andÂ Miller Index (k).

The formula for calculating hexagonal crystals:

i = -(h + k)

Where:

i = Hexagonal Crystals
h = Miller Index
k = Miller Index

Given an example;
Find the hexagonal crystals when the miller index is 22 and the miller index is 11.

This implies that;

h = Miller Index = 22
k = Miller Index = 11

i = -(h + k)
i = -(22 + 11)
So, i = -(33)
i = -33

Therefore, theÂ hexagonal crystalsÂ isÂ -33.

Calculating the Miller Index (h) when the Hexagonal Crystals and the Miller Index (k) are Given

h = – (i + k)

Where:

h = Miller Index
i = Hexagonal Crystals
k = Miller Index

Let’s solve an example;
Find the miller index when the hexagonal crystal is 8 and the miller index is 3.

This implies that;

i = Hexagonal Crystals = 8
k = Miller Index = 3

h = – (i + k)
That is, h = – (8 + 3)
h = – 11

Therefore, theÂ miller indexÂ isÂ -11.

Calculating the Miller Index (k) when the Hexagonal Crystals and the Miller Index (h) are Given

k = -(i + h)

Where:

k = Miller Index
i = Hexagonal Crystals
h = Miller Index

Let’s solve an example;
Find the miller index when the hexagonal crystal is 5 and the miller index is 9.

This implies that;

i = Hexagonal Crystals = 5
h = Miller Index = 9

k = – (i + h)
Then, k = – (5 + 9)
k = – 14

Therefore, theÂ miller indexÂ isÂ – 14.
