A mathematician, a physicist, and an engineer are all given identical

rubber balls and told to find the volume. They are given anything they

want to measure it, and have all the time they need.

The mathematician

pulls out a measuring tape and records the circumference. He then

divides by two times pi to get the radius, cubes that, multiplies by pi

again, and then multiplies by four-thirds and thereby calculates the

volume.

The physicist gets a bucket of water, places 1.00000 gallons of

water in the bucket, drops in the ball, and measures the displacement

to six significant figures.

And the engineer? He writes down the serial

number of the ball, and looks it up.
