50%? Is that at sea level where the air pressure is 14.7 psi.?
At a higher altitude where air pressure is less wouldn't the water expand?

Actually liquids are nearly incompressible.
A glass with 50% liquid at room temperature at sea level would still be 50% on the top of mount everest at the same temperature.
It would take something like 10,000psi to have any affect, maybe even more.

The glass is obviously less then half full AND more then half empty guys, the top is wider then the bottom. *sarcasm* :lol:

depends on where it started. Did you fill it and then drink 1/2. Or did you just fill it 1/2 way ?

the pragmatist in me would say almost empty, as everything is almost air, distance between atomic particles is as long as from earth to moon :) just empty space. But I'll go with half full.
L.E. sorry if i bumped the thread. I'll be more careful in the future.

Shit I am an extreme optimist, I get excited when I still have one swig left. (Mikey checking all the beer cans and finds one with a swig and starts dancing)

That's not extreme optimism. That's alcoholism.

Ilia got it right a page back...

The glass is ALWAYS FULL. In the case we are considering it is half water and half atmospheric gases and trace volitiles in the air of the thread starter room. (Think tainted methane).

Even in the depths of outer fucking space our ethereal glass of discussion will contain a completely encircled and dimensionaly defined volume of VACUUM.

Remember we didn't specify what must be IN the glass only if it was full or empty or something in between.

In the later case the glass is full with absolute vacuum. Whate very you decide a vacuum is becomes immaterial to the decision of what is in the glass. It is full with it none the less.
