    BCC refers to "body-centered cubic" meaning that there is 1 lattice point in the center of the cube/unit and 8 at each vertex

    so this would have 2 lattice points per unit cell

    BCC is the body centered cubic crystal system: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cubic_crystal_system There are seven 3D crystal systems: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crystal_system

    BCC is body centered cubic crystal structure. in this crystal system you have 1 atom at the center of the cube and 1/8 th atom at the corners. the total number of atoms are 2 and its coordination number is 8, and the Atomic packing factor for this structure is .68.

    BCC is body centered cubic system !!!!where 8 atoms will be at the corners of the cube and one at the body center!!! remember that both the atoms at the center and the corners of a cube must be same!!!! for example tungsten is BCC structure !!! CSCl is not a BCC structure but it is BCC like structure!!!! the atoms are touchin along Body diagonaly only
