# Chapter 3: The Structure of Crystalline Solids

Linear and Planar Atomic Densities Linear Density: Directional equivalency is related to the atomic linear density in the sense that equivalent directions have identical linear densities. The direction vector is positioned so as to pass through atom centers. The fraction of line length intersected by these atoms is equal to the linear density. Planar Density: Crystallographic planes that are equivalent have the same atomic planar density. The plane of interest is positioned so as to pass through atom centers. Planar density is the fraction of total crystallographic plane area that is occupied by atoms. Linear and planar densities are one- and two-dimensional analogs of the atomic packing factor.
