Becky Cook's jmol testpage #6

Here's that double-walled tube with a single-walled internal closure. How does the annular void around the internal closure compare in size and shape to the annular void (kind of like a buckytube nanotire) in the 15-wall tube with a 6-wall internal closure shown in the 300 kV electron phase contrast image below?

The image below is tiny part of a much larger image of multi-walled carbon nanotubes lying like straight sticks of uncooked spaghetti after falling out of the box into a pot on the stove.
