What is the value of y?

Little Euclid was playing with a cuboidal box, with a square base, and 14 identical wooden spheres. He observed that he could snugly and perfectly arrange exactly nine of the fourteen spheres at the bottom of the box in a single layer comprising three rows and three columns. He then placed another layer of four spheres, stably and symmetrically on top of the bottom layer (i.e., such that each sphere in the second layer touched exactly four spheres of the bottom layer). Finally he placed the last sphere, stably and symmetrically, on top of the second layer and observed that he could then just close the lid of the box. Find the ratio of the height of the box to the radius of each sphere.
