what "area" are you asking about?

please note that for atomic scale systems, terms like surface or

volume are not as cleanly defined as in macroscopic objects. so you

will have to make some assumptions/approximations to determine your

desired "area" property. in the most extreme case you'd have a single

atom, but what is the "size" or "area" or "surface" of a single atom?
