### Perfect Crystals

How do you determine that a molecule is a perfect crystal? Will that information be given to us or will we have to use Lewis diagrams?

It would be stated directly

### Re: Perfect Crystals

It will be stated as "perfect" i would assume. Since S=KlnW, W would be 1 in a perfect system and S would be 0.
