    Water anybody?

    As some of you know I just returned from holiday with the family and had a great time climbing cliffs, fossil hunting and sightseeing. Well as you can imagine this was thirsty work and so Mrs Jezza always packed a bottle of water for us to sip on during our adventures. Before every journey we filled the bottle to the top. At the first stop we drank some of it and when it is 3/4 full I decided to weigh it and it was 570 grams ( I used my Swiss Army penknife scales). At the next stop we drank some more and weighed it again when it was 1/3 full and it was 270 grams.

    What was the weight of water when the bottle was full and how much did the bottle weigh?
