There is also a hollow hole that has the same radius as cylinder A. Cylinder A weighs 100kg. Cylinder B is lighter and smaller than cylinder A. Both cylinders have the same thickness. When the edge of Cylinder B is just past the centre of the hole (that has the same radius as Cylinder A) it falls inside the hole. QUESTIONS: 1) What is the radius of cylinder A? 2) What is the weight of cylinder B? PS: the question does not give any other numerical values to work with

What is the 'thickness' of a cylinder? and what do you mean by 'just past' the centre of the hole?

Smaller how? Area? Volume?
