Hypothetical brain teaser here, no real kittens involved! -
For some bizarre reason I have a sack of kittens, I need to find the total weight of the kittens and the sack but I'm only allowed to use a spring scale and I'm only allowed use my arms to hold the scale. My arms are unsteady and the kittens are constantly moving around in the sack, causing the weight display on the scale to dance around wildly.The kittens all weigh different weights and they are in constant motion. I am wondering if it is possible to very accurately get a reading from the scale, perhaps by incorporating some kind of accelerometer? This has been puzzling me for some time!
Looking forward to hearing your input.
