### Beaker X contains 50cm3 of marbles while Beaker Y contains 100cm3 of water. When all the water in Beaker Y is poured into Beaker X what is the volume of the water in Beaker X?

The volume of the water in Beaker X will be 100cm3, as
you are not adding any more water to the equation (50X+100Y is not
150Y or X, but 50X+100Y) The total volume of matter in Beaker X
will be 150cm3, and if the beaker is labelled, the volume measure
will indicate 150cm3 due to the displacement of water. But as
the answer to your question, the volume of water in Beaker X must
be 100cm3 even though visual indicators will not show this due
to the displacement of water by marbles

### How can get the volume of solid irregular shapes?

REQUIREMENT: stone(volume to be measured), a beaker,
thread, water.
PROCEDURE: 1. Take water in a beaker half liter or a
liter of water.
2. Take another beaker with water and put into stone for half
hour.
3. Now tied the stone with thread and put in in step 1
beaker,
the increased volume in beaker is your stone volume.
Thanks.

### What method is to find the volume of a irregularly shape?

Depending on the size of the object this can be difficult. For a
large object, lime a mountain, say, you have no option but to
estimate.
For smaller objects use a large beaker, and fill it with a
liquid in which your shape is not soluble. Measure the volume of
liquid in the beaker. Then place the object into the water and make
sure it is totally submerged. The volume of the water in the beaker
will rise and the volume of the shape is the difference between the
two measures.

### What is volume by displacement?

Volume displacement is the method used to find the volume of
small or irregularly shaped objects by noting the difference in the
level of liquid before and after after immersing an object into a
graduated cylinder or beaker of liquid.
For a small object immersed in a graduated cylinder or beaker,
the volume displaced by the object can be read directly from the
scale on the container.

### How do you find mass if density isn't given?

You don't need density to find mass. In a lot of question you
need to find density with the given mass and volume. But to find
density you would use a triple beam balance. To find volume you
would either measure the length, width and height or you could fill
a beaker up with water lets say 50g and then put the object in the
beaker and lets say it raised up to 80g all you have to do is
subtract 80g-50g=30g. To find density with volume and mass you
divide mass
------
volume and get density.

### Can a beaker measure kilograms?

Generally, a beaker (a glass jar) is used to measure volume
(litres, gallons, pints, etc), not mass (kilograms, pounds, stone,
etc).
However, if you know the volume and density of the material in
the beaker, you should be able to calculate its mass in
kilograms.
Density = Mass/Volume (mass over volume)
