Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I understand that the maximum packing fraction for a particular atomic structure can be calculated assuming the nearset neighbours are touching but my question is how can the maximum packing fraction be calculated for a basis containing two different types of atoms?

Thanks, James
