Conclusion:

Ratio of empty space between randomly packed spheres to the total volume of the spheres is a constant. This is related to an important geological fact-random packing of pebbles, even though their shapes are not spheres, has the same constant ratio of space to solid matter regardless of pebble sizes. As a consequence, if water is moving underground through strata of pebbles, it flows at the same rate regardless of the sizes of the pebbles.
