How do you read a 1000 ml graduated cylinder?
use the water displacement theory first fill a graduated cylinder to any amount then place the object in the graduated cylinder. read the current volume and subtract it from the original. example: if you fill a 50 mL graduated cylinder to 10 mL, and add a small rock, the volume will raise to 12 mL. that means the volume for the rock is 2 mL
A water displacement test. You take a graduated cylinder full of water and read how many mL you have. Then you place the object in the graduated cylinder and read how much the water has risen. You subtract your first value from the value with the object in the cylinder. The amount you then come up with is the area in mL. This can be converted to cm cubed since they are equal.
Liquid Volume Measuring Devices: The Graduated Cylinder and Buret Like weighing, measuring liquid volume is a fundamental and frequently encountered lab task. However, liquid volume is frequently measured using either a graduated cylinder or a buret. As the name implies, a graduated cylinder is a cylindrical glass (or plastic) tube sealed at one end with a calibrated scale etched (or marked) on the outside wall. Graduated cylinders come in a range of sizes (volume capacities)…
