You work in a patent office. One day this chap walks in with a rather
large box and said he has invented antigravity. He places his box on
your trusted old spring balance and the reading is 30kg. He then
presses a button on a remote control, and series of strange noises
are heard coming from the box. Lo and behold, the weight has gone
down to 29.5kg!
After about 30 seconds he presses his remote control again, and the
reading went back to 30kg.
The box is hermetically sealed and your weighing balance is not
compromised in anyway.
You said calmly,"We know that the Laws of Gravitation cannot be
defied, and neither can the Law of Conversation of Mass. I know wht's
going on in the box."
The Question is: What is going on in the box?
