Which of the following lattice has the highest packing efficiency? (i) simple cubic (ii) bodycentred (iii) hexagonal close packing.

Packing efficiency of all these kind of arrangements is given as follows. (i) Simple cubic :- Its packing efficiency is 52% . (ii) Body centred cubic :- Its packing efficiency is 68%. (iii) Hexagonal close packing:- Its packing efficiency is 74% . Conclusion :- From the above data we can conclude that hexagonal close packed
