    the volume of a sphere is.....cant recall,...but: the volume of the sphere - volume of the box = the amount of volume that is free. volume that is free ---------------- x 100 = percent of box the is free of the sphere volume of the box

    the radius of the sphere is half the measurement of the side of the box. that might be useful

    if I were to write a formula for it: where Bv = Box volume; Sv = Sphere volume Bv - Sv ------ x100 = Answer. Bv
