Water weighs 8.34 lbs per gallon, so 10 gallons would weigh 83.4

lbs.

### What has the largest capacity a bottle of medicine a bath full of water or a bucket of cleaning fluid?

Assuming all three are relatively normal compared to each other
(large bath, medium bucket and small bottle), then the bath will
hold a good deal more fluid than either the bucket or the medicine
bottle, and therefore has the largest capacity. However, if
capacity is measured against the amount of fluid they already
contain and they're all full, then they all have the same capacity:
none at all.

### How do you precisely measure 6 liters of water if you only have one 4 liter bucket and one 9 liter bucket with a steady flow of water?

you use the 4 litre bucket to feel the 9 litre bucket then empty
the 9 when it is full till you end up with 6 in it as follows
you put 2 buckets of 4 into 9
then 1 litre from 4 to fill 9 then empty 9
put remaining 3 into 9
put 4 more in
then 2 to fill 9 and empty
put remaining 2 in
then 4 more
giving you 6 litres

Take the 9l bucket filled to capacity and use it to fill the 4l
bucket twice leaving you with 1l remaining in the 9l bucket. Next,
pour that 1l into the 4l bucket. Fill the 9l to capacity again.
Using the 9l bucket fill the 4l bucket to capacity leaving you with
6l total in the 9l bucket.

### If a bag of 3 percent salt water is placed into a bucket of 0.3 percent salt water then the solution in the bucket is what compared to the solution in the bag?

The salt solution in the bucket is 10% of the salt solution in
the bag.
The bagged solution has a higher density than the bucket
solution; therefore, the bagged solution will most likely fall to
the bottom of the bucket as the bucket water is displaced above it
-- assuming there is no air in the bag, the density of the bag
material is negligible, and the salt is fully dissolved in the
water.
Details:
=
The solution in the bucket is 0.3% while the solution is the bag
is 3%. Thus, the solution in the bucket has less concentration of
salt than the solution in the bag. Hence, the solution in the
bucket is hypotonic to the solution in the bag.
