divide the 9 balls into 3 groups A,B,C

Weigh group A and B, either of them will be heavy,meaning the heaviest ball is in that group

else both will be equal, meaning the heaviest ball will be in C

Take any 2 balls in the heavier group and weigh them, the heavier of the 2 will be the heaviest ball, and if both are equal the ball left out from that group is the heaviest.

Separate the balls into grids of 3.

A) WEIGH ( 123 ) AGAINST ( 456 )

If equal go to step ( B )

If ( 123 ) Heavier go to step ( C )

If ( 456 ) Heavier go to step ( D )

B) WEIGH ( 7 ) AGAINST ( 8 )

If equal, BALL 9 is the HEAVY one

If ( 7 ) heavier, BALL 7 is the HEAVY one

If ( 8 ) heavier, BALL 8 is the HEAVY one

C) WEIGH ( 1 ) AGAINST ( 2 )

If equal, BALL 3 is the HEAVY one

If ( 1 ) heavier, BALL 1 is the HEAVY one

If ( 2 ) heavier, BALL 2 is the HEAVY one

D) WEIGH ( 4 ) AGAINST ( 5 )

If equal, BALL 6 is the HEAVY one

If ( 4 ) heavier, BALL 4 is the HEAVY one

If ( 5 ) heavier, BALL 5 is the HEAVY one

Wow, Both Aditi and Kala have hit on the right spot.
