Two jars made of very fine glass are shown in the illustration. They both have the same capacity–6L. Each jar is of the round profile, but since they are also of the same capacity, the left jar with the smaller profile is higher – 9 units, while the right jar with the bigger profile is lower–only 4 units high.

Having an immense supply of water the object is to measure 4L of water with the help of these jars.
