It's Just a Glass of Water.Trick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.
A glass is filled to the brim with ice water. Another single drop, and it will overflow. Its contents breakdown is as follows: 8.9341 ounces of water and 4.4493 ounces of ice. If it is 84.5 degrees F and the ice is melting at a rate of 103.552 times faster than the rate of evaporation, how far will the glass overflow once the ice melts?
AnswerThe glass would not overflow at all. Since the ice is already in the water it is causing as much, if not more displacement than when it melts.
