Sovereign Gold

gold fo all occasions puzzle?

Which is worth more, a bucket full of half a sovereign gold pieces or an identical bucket full of 1 sovereign gold pieces?
the ans given is bucket full of half a sovereign gold pieces...
hw come its possible pls explain in detail

The weight is all that matters. Let's suppose the two types of coins are equal in purity, and that the half sovereign is just a smaller circular cylinder than the sovereign.

You can pack half sovereigns more closely than you can pack sovereigns. That is, there will be less space between coins, since the coins are smaller. [Rigorously proving this statement is probably extremely hard, and I imagine there can be strange bucket shapes such that the full sovereign is the one you want, but in reality the half sovereigns would pack more closely.] As motivation, try tiling a rectangle with circles of a given radius, and then try again with circles of a smaller radius. You'll find you can fit more area in using the smaller circles, since they "mesh" better with the edges.

In any case, a tighter packing means a higher density of gold, so the bucket full of half sovereigns wins.
