### Mission Manager at SpaceX was asked...

Jul 30, 2013
 A man is in a canoe with a rock which is floating in a pool. What happens to the water level if you toss the rock in the pool. 6 AnswersBottom line is that unless you know the density of that rock... you can't answer the question.Isn't the density of the rock is irrelevant since it is already in pool (in the canoe)?When the rock is in the canoe it causes displacement equal to its mass regardless of its volume (so long as the canoe is still afloat). If the rock is submerged it will displace equal to its volume regardless of its mass. Some rocks also float (pumice) and for those the water level would stay the same because they are displacing equal to their mass wether in the canoe or in the pool.Show More ResponsesThere will be displacement, I think. It would be between the amount of water displacement by the canoe because of the rock onboard minus the amount of water displaced by the rock (its volume, if is a nonporous submersible rock).The water level decreases because the displacement from the weight of the boat (with the rock inside) is greater than the water displacement from the volume of the rock itself.1) what happens when the rock is taken out of the canoe: now we have less weight inside, the canoe rises and hence water level goes down. For now ignore whether the rock is taken out or dropped back into the pool. 2)when a rock is thrown into the pool it must displace some water and hence water rises, only if we assume rocks float. 3) now assuming canoe floats and rocks drown, rock has more density than the canoe and hence displaces less water. So the water level rise due to the rock is less compared to the water level fall because of the canoe 4) But why should the canoe displace more water compared to that displaced by the rock itself? Which doesn't make sense as the rock has no way to make differnce other than its weight. 5) So no change in water level?? And This is only steady state changes ignoring the transitions

 Why do you want to work for Govini?2 AnswersBe honest in your approach and you Are fineI applied for this position recently. So unless your comment is really generalized, you only had 2 interviews and then you got an offer??? Interesting.
