The barrel has maximum capacity of 30 Kg ,if someone fills it with anything
less than 30 kg that will be less than the maximum capacity of 30 kg.

If there is no trick in the words ( i.e. the barrel really weighs 30 kg) , then put kind of chemical acid that makes the bottom of the barrel being melted ( removed) which hence makes the weight of the barrel surly weighs less than 30 kg!

if we put a chemical material in the barrel that contain another chemical material… the two materials will interact and change to a gas.

the standard weight is 30 kg so we can put it some thing less than 30 kg

helium gas

The total capacity of the barrel is 30 kg but it weighs less than 30 kg.

He puts helium i.e. a gas that is lighter than the air

balloon full by gas like Helium was put inside the barrel.

25. mohamad ali May 26, 2015 at 1:21 PM #

Hilium gas

Hydrogen gas

28. Yousef May 26, 2015 at 12:51 PM #

It says a 30Kg Barrel. Not a barrel weighs 30 Kg.

So he should keep putting something in it until it weighs 30kg.

29. RANA SHOAIB MANZOOR May 26, 2015 at 12:37 PM #

30-KG IS THE RATING/CAPACITY OF THE BARREL.
IT COULD BE ANYTHING LESS THAN 30KG.

Vacuum

31. ahmad May 26, 2015 at 12:02 PM #

hot air (lifting gases, lighter than air) like hot air, neon, water vapor, methane, helium, hydrogen etc…

32. Ahmed May 26, 2015 at 11:45 AM #

anything smaller/lighter than the 30kg capacity of the barrel, i.e. anything weighing less than 30 kg
