**Question:**

a) Show that the structure factor for a monatomic hexagonal close-packed crystal structure can take on the six values as K ranges through the points of the simple hexagonal reciprocal lattice.

(b) Show that all reciprocal lattice points have nonvanishing structure factor in the plane perpendicular to the c-axis containing K = 0

(c) Show that points of zero structure factor are found in alternate planes in the family of reciprocal lattice planes perpendicular to the c-axis.
