# Albert Einstein’s water tank quiz!

### The water tank quiz!

Many of us parents are now on summer vacation with our children so I thought I’d come away from Minecraft a little and have a bit of fun!

We see many problems posted on social media testing our IQ and this one is pretty good!

Can you solve this problem from Albert Einstein in under 15 seconds?

what water tank will fill up first? leave your comment below!

So Did you do it?

Think you’re clever?

Did you know there is actually a book full of how Albert Einstein solved these puzzles? Are you up for the challenge?

If you are the book is called :

USA: Think Like Einstein: Think Smarter

If you prefer the actual puzzle book then the Albert Einsteins Puzzles will be better for you!

Are you sure? Look abit closer!

1. Jack says:

Agreed, F

Well done!? ?

1. Lourdes Santiago says:

G

2. Priyanka J says:

K

HI

Why do you think it’s K?

If you don’t look at the whole picture you would think it would be k good to go back and look again

3. Mr Jack says:

Yes

????????

1. Chris C. says:

There is not enough data to answer the question correctly. Let me explain the flow rate of the water is not listed. There for depending on flow rate it can be G or A if the rate is slow enough G will fill first but if the flow rate is faster than the diameter of pipe in container A can handle the A will fill first. So not enough data to come to proper conclusion.

2. This is very true if it was a physical experiment as you have rightly pointed out, many factors have to be taken into account, I’m sure when this puzzle was created it would of take it into account however this is just a simple digital version of the puzzle and the link below will take you through to a video of it in action, the rate of flow is at a consistent slow rate.

2. Evy says:

Are you sure?

2. Val G says:

C can’t get water because D is closed. No flow can get to D so no water can get to G

If you want tbe answer I have published a link on the page.

Double check the route of the water flow!

2. K says:

The way to D is closed so, Not G

2. Pim says:

It’s F

1. Timm Dunn says:

How is it not K?

Hi Tim

If you look at the entry tunnels in tank J, the one to tank I will only ever reach the same level as the tunnel to Tank L, Water will always find the quickest route.

here’s a link to you tube showing you, there are also other other videos here showing you aswell

regards
Darren

2. Francis says:

Because J fills up L before I thus filling up F before K

2. stacie says:

so it is F?

3. Looks like g to me . It HAS to be G !!!

no shall I tell you the answer! ha ha

2. Alex says:

Water can’t get into D the pipe is blocked off

3. Ralph Brew says:

But there is no entry to G. Note that the inlet pipe is blocked. So it has to be H.

1. Thea says:

But from D, there is a pipe down to G.

4. Mica says:

Looks like it is G

5. Frank Perez says:

I think it’s G

6. Emery J says:

I think it’s j. But to those who think it’s g, your wrong. Look closer at c,d, and e. D is blocked from being filled by c. And there is no other way for water to get to e. I would also like to point out that I am 13 and I noticed that small detail in 10 seconds.

7. Gareth says:

It’s F

8. Bella says:

It has to be G

9. bleh says:

its for sure F

10. Alex says:

I thought it was G. But the water can’t get in to D due to the blockage. So that leaves F to fill first. F F F F F F F

11. Geoff says:

I think it is tank L

12. L. I thought G, but then read the post about the blockage. Now I say it is L.

13. Jen says:

K will fill first. The water level can’t get up to L until it gets above the line in the J tank. It can’t get past that line until I fills, for I to fill K has to fill first.

14. Ralph Brew says:

H. LOWEST POINT, NO OUTLETS. NO BLOCKED INLETS. SIMPLE.

15. Josh K says:

16. Hugh Goodwin says:

F

1. Scott Cameron says:

K

17. Kalle says:

A>B>C>D and then “G” und sonst nix!

18. DanaC says:

A will fill up 1st

I’ve put the answer on the page !

19. Hello says:

I got f…

20. Irene says:

It’s E. All goes in, nothing comes out.

21. Isaac says:

Tank G

22. Bruce says:

Depends on the flow rate, turn the water on full,A will fill very quickly.

1. Kay says:

disregard last post, just opened my eyes and saw the blockages, F is the right answer

23. Kay says:

i cant see any blockage to G.
assuming flow rate is in equilibrium to A’s outlet from initial tap, G is the right answer

24. Phil Johnson says:

Water cannot get into D so neither D, E or G will not get any water as won’t H. Water will find its own level starting at the lowest level in this case F.

It’s good to get an explanation as well as an answer!

I will be adding more puzzzles soon!

25. Aiman says:

Take a closer look at C and the water feed to G! ?
