The Mathster Chef: The Perfect Glass of Wine
Dr Eugenia Cheng, Senior Lecturer in Mathematics from the University of Sheffield, discusses the mathematics behind the perfect glass of wine. Here is the solution for pouring a perfect 25ml shot of wine…
1) Pour a glass of 175 and then pour it into the 250 glass.
2) Pour another glass of 175 and top up the other glass to 250, and then pour the rest into another 250 glass.
3) Pour a third glass of 175 and top off the second 250 glass.
4) The remainder will be 25ml.
