    Graphite is a 2D structure having atomic basis 4 ... four carbon atoms are bonded in a basis whereas in graphene atoms basis is 2

    but in diamond no. of atoms per unit permittive cell are 8 and in graphene these are 6 as u write that in graphite we have 4 atoms per unit permittive cell

    Yes you are right no of primitive cells is 8 but here we check the no. of atoms in basis so Diamond is a 3D crystal structure with a face centered cubic Bravais lattice and "two a...
