Subj:     Finding Height With A Barometer 
          From: collins2 on 5/20/00 

 The following concerns a question in a physics degree exam 
 at the University of Copenhagen: "Describe how to determine 
 the height of a skyscraper with a barometer." 

 One student replied: 

 "You tie a long piece of string to the neck of the barometer, 
 then lower the barometer from the roof of the skyscraper to 
 the ground.  The length of the string plus the length of the 
 barometer will equal the height of the building." 

 This highly original answer so incensed the examiner that 
 the student was failed immediately.  The student appealed on 
 the grounds that his answer was indisputably correct, and 
 the university appointed an independent arbiter to decide 
 the case.  The arbiter judged that the answer was indeed 
 correct, but did not display any noticeable knowledge of 
 physics.  To resolve the problem it was decided to call the 
 student in and allow him six minutes in which to provide a 
 verbal answer which showed at least a minimal familiarity 
 with the basic principles of physics. 

 For five minutes the student sat in silence, forehead 
 creased in thought.  The arbiter reminded him that time was 
 running out, to which the student replied that he had 
 several extremely relevant answers, but couldn't make up 
 his mind which to use.  On being advised to hurry up the 
 student replied as follows: 

 "Firstly, you could take the barometer up to the roof of 
 the skyscraper, drop it over the edge, and measure the 
 time it takes to reach the ground.  The height of the 
 building can then be worked out from the formula 
 H = 0.5g x t squared.  But bad luck on the  barometer." 

 "Or if the sun is shining you could measure the height 
 of the barometer, then set it on end and measure the 
 length of its shadow.  Then you measure the length of 
 the skyscraper's shadow, and thereafter it is a simple 
 matter of proportional arithmetic to work out the height 
 of the skyscraper." 

 "But if you wanted to be highly scientific about it, you 
 could tie a short piece of string to the barometer and 
 swing it like a pendulum, first at ground level and then 
 on the roof of the skyscraper.  The height is worked out 
 by the difference in the gravitational restoring force 
 T = 2 pi sqr root (l / g)." 

 "Or if the skyscraper has an outside emergency staircase, 
 it would be easier to walk up it and mark off the height 
 of the skyscraper in barometer lengths, then add them up." 

 "If you merely wanted to be boring and orthodox about it, 
 of course, you could use the barometer to measure the air 
 pressure on the roof of the skyscraper and on the ground, 
 and convert the difference in millibars into feet to give 
 the height of the building." 

 "But since we are constantly being exhorted to exercise 
 independence of mind and apply scientific methods, 
 undoubtedly the best way would be to knock on the 
 janitor's door and say to him 'If you would like a nice 
 new barometer, I will give you this one if you tell me 
 the height of this skyscraper'." 

 The student was Niels Bohr, the only Dane to win the 
 Nobel prize for Physics.
