Volume Calculation

I have a rectangular solid filled with copper powders. I can find the volume of that. On top of the copper powders I am going to electrodeposit (product of electrolysis) Nickel.
The problem is that some of the Nickel seeps through the copper powder while some of it remains on top of it.

How can I find the volume of Nickel that actually seeps through into the copper powder?

Here is some calculations that I had done:

Volume of copper powder = l*b*h
I can find out the total Volume of Nickel deposited through some equations.

Will subtracting the total Volume of Nickel from the Volume of Copper powders give the Volume of Nickel that has seeped through?

Any help on this is much appreciated.

You would need to know how much nickel remains on top.
