What other diameter of tube could be used in either one of these fireworks so that there is still close packing?
Sequel

If you increased the diameter of the cylinder by one small circle, how many small circles would you need to add?







How many circles can you fit in a box of given dimensions? In a barrel of given diameter?

Assuming the fireworks each fire at the same rate, which package will finish first?


Assuming the same depth/thickness of fuel, how much more explosive was the big one?
