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?
What about it makes no sense?c++guru said:The solution in the back makes no sense

I was answering the riddle, not denying assistance.Bystander said:No.
I'll give you a hint since the OP hasn't been back to say what the bother is: "Two points."phinds said:Really?
You meant "immersion depth?" rather than "diameter," in which case, there's insufficient information.phinds said:diameter of the bowl is 11cm ?
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.Bystander said:I'll give you a hint since the OP hasn't been back to say what the bother is: "Two points."

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!Bystander said:I'll give the OP the rest of the day, then "spill the beans" come evening.
What solution? On the back of what?c++guru said:That solution on the back makes no sense linguistically.
