  31. 31. Measuring Volume We will be using graduated cylinders to find the volume of liquids and other objects. Read the measurement based on the bottom of the meniscus or curve. When using a real cylinder, make sure you are eye-level with the level of the water. What is the volume of water in the cylinder? _____mLWhat causes the meniscus?A concave meniscus occurs when the molecules of the liquidattract those of the container. The glass attracts the water on thesides. 9
  32. 32. Measuring Liquid Volume What is the volume of water in each cylinder? Images created at http://www.standards.dfes.gov.uk/primaryframework/downloads/SWF/measuring_cylinder.swfA B C Pay attention to the scales for each cylinder. 10
  33. 33. Measuring Solid Volume We can measure the volume of regular object 9 cm using the formula length x width x height. _____ X _____ X _____ = _____ 8 cm 10 cm We can measure the volume ofirregular object using water displacement. Amount of H2O with object = ______ About of H2O without object = ______ Difference = Volume = ______ 11
