What is volume?
The interactive below takes you through the process of reading a graduated cylinder. It will TEST your skills after a quick lesson. Please go through the entire lesson.
The volume of an irregular object, like a rock, can be measured by figuring out the displacement of liquid within a graduated cylinder.
Look at the example on the right. ------------------->
Its initial Volume was 200 Ml
After the rock was added it was 280 Ml
So the volume of the rock is 80 Ml
