Left to Right:<br />
Simple, Body-Centered & Face-Centered<br />
In the simple cubic cell, spheres come into contact along each edge.  In the body-centered cubic cell, contact of the spheres is along the cube diagonal.  In the face-centered cubic cell, contact of the spheres is along the diagonal of a face.
