Define packing efficiency.
Asked by Topperlearning User | 16th Jun, 2016, 03:36: PM
The packing efficiency is the fraction of the crystal or unit cell actually occupied by the atoms. It is impossible to pack spheres without having some empty space between them.
Packing efficiency = area of the spheres in the unit cell / total area of unit cell
