A mathematician, a physicist and an engineer are tasked with finding the volume of a rubber ball

The mathematician takes the ball, measures its diameter, then calculates the volume. The physicist submerges the ball in water and measures the amount of water displaced. The engineer twists and turns the ball, looking for the model number.

The version I know ends with the engineer just checking their Red Rubber Ball Chart.


In what world would a mathematician measure anything? They would just ask the physicist to do it for them lmao.


I don’t get this. Why would anyone think that a guy that drives a train should know the volume of a ball?


I am all three and I approve except I’m a software engineer so I would just google ‘stackoverflow rubber ball volume’


And take photos. Lots of photos.
