30°F = FreeeeeeeezTrick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.
If I were in Hawaii and dropped a bowling ball in a bucket of water which is 45 degrees F, and dropped another ball of the same weight, mass, and size in a bucket at 30 degrees F, both of them at the same time, which ball would hit the bottom of the bucket first?
Same question, but the location is in Canada.
AnswerBoth questions, same answer: the ball in the bucket of 45-degree F water hits the bottom of the bucket last.
Did you think that the water in the 30-degree F bucket is frozen? Think again. The question said nothing about that bucket having anything in it. Therefore, there is no water (or ice) to slow the ball down...
