A metallic element crystallizes into a lattice containing a sequence of layers ABABAB....Any packing of spheres leaves out voids in the lattice. What percentage by volume of this lattice is empty space? ( IIT-.IEF 2006)

The sequence ABABAB... indicates hcp unit cell. Now, there are 6 atoms per unit cell and volume of the umt cell is 24√2 r3.Thus, the packing fraction is:
