Not shaken, not stirred, but stable. (Posted on 2005-09-10) Difficulty: 3 of 5
A cylindrical glass has a mass of 100 grams. It is partially filled with water (density = 1 gram/cubic centimeter.)

The glass has an inside diameter of 8cm and an internal depth of 15cm. When empty the center of mass is 8cm from the top of the glass.

The glass is most stable when its center of gravity is as low as possible. How much water is then in the glass?
