Displacement is the amount of space that an object takes up when placed in a fluid. Have you ever noticed how the water level rises in a bathtub when you get into it? The amount of water you are displacing is the volume of your body that is in the water. so by measuring the displacement of an object, you can measure the volume of the object.
