Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the totl volums of the water when it is sitting on the smallest face would be 6*5*10 (since the height from the bottom would be 155) = 300 cubic cm Now when the container is placed on its largest face, the volume of water is still is the same i.e 300. the equation becomes 15*12*h=300 h=20/12 i.e 5/3 = 1.66 from the bottom or (61.67)cm from the top
