This paper is a continuation of the work on the new approach to the packing problems of randomly embedded granular material proposed by Góźdź and Pietrow. In previous paper a quantum mechanical approach (QMA) to packing was introduced and 2and 3-dimensional packing experiments for circles (spheres) were generated on this basis. Packing fractions were calculated to test the ability to build 2 and 3-dimensional beds with correct properties. In this paper we continue testing the QMA model.
