A salt, MY, crystallizes in CsCl structure, a body-centered cubic structure with a Y- anion at each cube corner and an M+ cation at the cube center. Assuming that the Y- anions touch each other and the M+ cation at the center, and the radius of Y- is 1.50 angstroms, the radius of M+ is:
If you draw this thing (all ions touching), you'll see that the length of each side of the cube is 2 times radius of anion (3 angstroms total)..
