So I've been trying to do some physics puzzles and I've come across this in a book called "200 puzzling physics problems." The solution in the back makes no sense to me and I can't seem to figure it out by myself. Can anyone help me?
I can only think that we must be interpreting the problem statement differently. I agree there is insufficient information for my interpretation, but that is still my reading of the problem. That is, I read it as a very clearly stated problem that provides insufficient information for an answer.I'll give you a hint since the OP hasn't been back to say what the bother is: "Two points."
You meant "immersion depth?" rather than "diameter," in which case, there's insufficient information.
AAAARRRRGGGHHHH & dammit !! I obviously can't read. The diameter is given. Forget everything I've said in this thread. In fact, forget I'm even a member here!I'll give the OP the rest of the day, then "spill the beans" come evening.
What solution? On the back of what?That solution on the back makes no sense linguistically.
