# How can you measure irregular objects?

do you mean getting the area???

For Area:

Place the irregular objects on a graph paper and trace the outline of the object. Now count the complete square as 1 and other incomplete as 0.5 or so according to how much it occupies. Now finally sum them up and that would be the area of that particular object.

If you mean to say volume then:

You can find the volume of an irregular object by the displacement of water. In order to find the volume by displacement you need a measuring cylinder.

In the measuring cylinder pour some water in it up to a certain point such that you can read it. Now insert the irregular object in to the cylinder gently. Now read the height of water on the cylinder. Now deduct the first reading from second, that should be your volume of irregular object.

If finding perimeter then

trace out the outline of the object and simply measure the length of the object on the paper.

** Note: you must trace all side that you can see

### Describe how you could measure the volume of an object with an irregular shape?

First, fill a large graduated cylinder up with water. Then, measure how much water is in the graduated cylinder before you put the irregular object in. Last, measure how much water is in the graduated cylinder after you put the irregular object in, then subtract the two numbers and that is the volume of the irregular object.

### Which is better to measure volume ruler micrometer displacement?

It depends on what object you are trying to measure. Displacement is appropriate for a medium sized, non-soluble object, of any shape. It would be pretty useless if you wanted to measure the volume of a concert hall or a needle! And it would not work for a sugar cube either. A micrometre would be appropriate for small objects with simple geometry, such as a needle or possibly a sugar cube. But is would be…

### What method used to measure irregular solids?

To measure what quantity of irregular solids? If its volume you are referring then you can use the volume displacement method where you need a measuring cylinder, water and possibly a displacement can. Measure a known quantity of water. Then immerse the irregular solid in this cylinder. The rise in the water level equals the volume of the irregular solid. Note that if the irregular object floats, a sinker must be used to fully immerse…
