Problem

You may want to reference (Pages 537 - 544) Section 12.3 while completing this problem.

Calculate the packing efficiency of the two-dimensional lattice shown here:

The figure shows a two-dimensional lattice which consists of 4 rows per 5 circles. The lattice is divided by grid so that each square of the grid contains 4 quarters of 4 neighboring circles. One of these squares is painted white.
