In the HCP Lattice in solid state physics,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can any one proof GEOMETRICALLY and in algebric way that the the ratio between the height and the constant of the lattice equals sqrt(8/3)=1.633?

Maybe a is not the lattice constant, but really i need some one to explain for me everything about the HCP dimensions because it's gonna blow my brain while i'm having an exam after 8 days !!!!!!!!!!!

What is the constant of this lattice? and which 2 points we are taking distances from to get this damn constant in HCP???

Thanks
