Measuring Time Interview Problem

Measuring Time Interview Problem - 12 November

I possess two wires. Both of them have an inconstant thickness but both of them burns completely in sixty minutes. The problem is that I want to measure forty-five minutes while using these two wires.

How can I measure if cutting the wire in half is not possible due to non-homogeneous construction ?

  1. Step1: Burn first wire from both the ends and second one from one end.When the first wire was completly burnt, gives a measure of half an our.
    Step2: Now burn the second wire from other end.It gives a measure of 15min
    Total 45 minutes
