 Cubes in a tin (Posted on 2006-05-15)
There is a rectangular tin 2cm by 3cm at the base, 2cm deep and open at the top.
It is filled with water to a depth of .4cm.
Twelve 1cm steel cubes are placed in the tin one by one. The first six form a single layer at the bottom. The next six form a second layer.

To what height does the water level rise after the placement of each cube?
Assume the cubes fit together tightly, leaving no spaces.
