Awesome! \(9 \, \mathrm{gm}\) of Water splits into \(1 \, \mathrm{gm}\) of Hydrogen. \(18 \, \mathrm{gm}\) of Water is double \(9 \, \mathrm{gm}\) of Water. So, we should get double the amount of Hydrogen, that is \(2 \, \mathrm{gm}\). Similarly, we should get double the \(8 \, \mathrm{gm}\) of Oxygen, that is, \(16 \, \mathrm{gm}\).
In the previous Chapter, we discussed mixtures. We said that a cup of tea is a mixture of milk, tea leaves and sugar. Your father and your mother make one cup of tea each. You take \(10 \, \mathrm{gm}\) of tea from each cup and split it into tea leaves, milk and sugar.
Which of the following is more likely? (That is, which of the following has a higher possibility?)
  • Both teas have exactly the same amount of sugar in them
  • Both teas have different amounts of sugar in them
