If we have an emty cylindrical  glass  on a flat table with a dice inside it , naturally, it will contain an amount of air inside it.

Now , if we invert this glass upside down on the table, leaving the dice still inside it but landing on the table , will the amount of air inside the glass changes?

If yes, would it be more or less, and why?

If no...why?

Normally, I would say that the dice are just a red herring to confuse us - BUT - I think they are of some significance!
