3+3=?Science brain teasers require understanding of the physical or biological world and the laws that govern it.
LegalMumboJumbo was entered into a game show. If he answered one question correctly he would win one million dollars. If he missed the question, a buzzer would sound and Legal would have to donate $50,000 dollars to a local charity. The question was "What does three fluid ounces of water plus three fluid ounces of alcohol equal?" and Legal immediately said "Six fluid ounces!"
Did LegalMumboJumbo win one million dollars?
AnswerNo, he did not. This may seem odd, but when different liquids are mixed, the combined liquid becomes more dense. So, the liquid becomes more compact and takes up less volume in the container. It is a small but measurable difference.
