# Schweppes measure.

#### empip

Schweppes are supplying a 'measuring cap' on their Indian Tonic and Canada dry ginger (etc) 1 litre bottles.

To the cap's inner marker, as specified, the measured volume is 35 cc.

If a bottle of beverage contains 40% alcohol by vol, this means 40 UK units of alcohol per litre - 10 cc of alc' being one UK unit.
Therefore 1 UK unit is contained in 25 cc of the drink, 35cc contains 1.4 UK units of alcohol.

Is the measuring cap correct for 1 unit - anywhere? 35 cc of booze at 40% alc' by vol is the measure for 1 unit (approx' 14cc alcohol) in Finland maybe elsewhere too.

Use the cap and you'll lace your single drinks with more alcohol than you thought you had actually measured, perhaps this Christmas ...

I know. We had to adjust the shelves to make the taller bottles fit

And stop being so pedantic, sit back and enjoy life! So what if you drink more than you thought, life's for living!

Did you know that if you mix 500 ml of pure alcohol with 500 ml of water the resulting mixture is only 998 ml.

No...

You are driving in a car at a constant speed. On your left side is a 'drop off' (The ground is 18-20 inches below the level you are traveling on), and on your right side is a fire engine traveling at the same speed as you. In front of you is a galloping horse which is the same size as your car and you cannot overtake it. Behind you is another galloping horse. Both horses are also traveling at the same speed as you. What must you do to safely get out of this highly dangerous situation?

Do a James Bond

Slide into the 'drop' on the left with a rapid action - the car will end up on two wheels in a vertical position and you can slip past the horse in front. The car will right itself again as the female passenger climbs over onto the drivers lap

If Connery can do it - why not me

Homer

restart the computer

wait for the fire engine to move or you can slow down or even stop to let the horses past

Nah ...

Get your drunken 'ariss off the k'in merry-go-round !!

And... Further did you know that you cannot recover 500ml of pure alcohol by distilling the mixture, no matter how many time you distill it? THe best you can achieve is about 97% Alc. by volume.

Also, when mixing alcohol (ethanol) and water, no chemical reaction takes place.

Sounds like molar quantities are involved here...anyone remember Avogadro?

6.018 x 10^23 ?

Ah, yes, his famous number....apparently he also sang in falsetto dressed as a tart, but wasn't remembered for that
