At the center of A body-centered cubic unit cell is a sphere that is contained entirely within the unit cell. Furthermore the cubic structure consists of a cubic unit cell in which the eight spheres at the corners each only belong 1/8 to the unit cell. The unit cell contains a total of two formula units. The packing efficiency of the spheres in this type of cell is 68%.
