Iím sitting in a boat in a pool. In the boat with me is a cannonball. What happens to the level of the pool if I take the cannonball out of the boat and drop it into the pool? Does the level increase, decrease or stay the same?
(In reply to re: depends on the density
While the title of the puzzle is "Water level", the word "water" never appears in the puzzle itself. If this were a pool of mercury, the cannonball would float and the level would remain the same.
