Difficulty:** (1.37)



A juggler must perform a trick in which he crosses a narrow bridge juggling 3 balls. He weighs 80 kg and each one of the balls weighs 10 kg. However, the bridge can hold only 100 kg before breaking. The lion tamer said that as long as he kept one ball in the air, the bridge won't collapse. Is he correct?

What's under the bridge, anyways?

ditto what Nerine said entertaining visual imagery made a dry scientific teaser fun thanks

I got it without the hint, but i said that when he catches the ball the force would cause him to go over the weight limit.(i'm thinking thought that could be disputed, therefore making yours more accurate =]) great teaser

I can't believe it took six years for this to be submitted. It's almost a classic! :lol: Right now, I'm trying to picture an 80 kg fatso juggling bowling balls. :o I have to try juggling those sometime . . .

Who makes a bridge w/ only a 100 kg limit?

Posted by Deedee12304/01/09
And who weighs 80 Kg?

Scientifically found teaser and correct answer. Very fun!

Interesting teaser. I'll have to take your word for the answer, though. Thanks for posting. :o

The average male weight in the United States is actually over 80kg.

It's hope the juggler either doesn't listen to the lion tamer or loses weight!

I got ur point eventhough it's quite confusing..i suggest you put ur computations on how u come up on ur conclusion..& oh, let me remind u that kg is only a unit for weight & not for force..anyways, it's still a good teaser..keep it up!..

good one man ....

What if he juggled nearly straight horizontal? I juggle that way sometimes, and I don't think the force to throw would affect the bridge.
