3. I see it tips to the left.Some say it is about density of water at 4 C degree some say it is about the evapouration of water . However I am not sure what the real reason is.
Can you plz help me with that

The diagram shows "1 l" (one liter) on the buckets. One assumes based on this and on the assertion that both buckets contain the same "amount of water" that there is an equal volume on both sides.

I read it already he says there is equal volume of water in both. Can you explain why the keel tips to the left, genius friend?
You offered two explanations in post #1. Which of them, if either, is consistent with the buckets containing equal volumes of water (at the time that it tips)? Does it explain the tipping?

We are not here to confirm or refute guesses. You have to put in some effort.

Ever wondered why they cool rocket fuel before putting it in the rocket?

I understand that, but the onus is on you to provide some reasoning as to whether either could be.

I only said you should supply some reasoning, not that it had to be right.
Let me try a different tack: two cubes of metal, same size but different metals, are placed equidistant from the fulcrum. One side tips down. What can you say about that cube compared with the other?
