Ways on how to use graduated cylinder properly?
The graduations are correct only at the temperature marked on the cylinder, the cylinder must be very clean and dry, don't use corrosive liquids for the material of cylinder, read only under the meniscus, not useful for very coloured liquids, the measurement is absolutely correct for liquids and true solutions - not for suspensions.
Which tool would you use to see how much water is in something a measuring cup or a graduated cylinder?
First, you need to get a graduated cylinder filled up with water and record the volume.Next, you put an irregularly object into a graduated cylinder fill with water. Then, you measure the volume of the graduated cylinder with the irregularly shaped object in it.Finally, you subtract the highest volume which was the volume of the graduated cylinder with the irregularly shaped object in it by the regular volume of the graduated cylinder which is the…
not quite. you can measure volume in a graduated cylinder. you can use a scale, water, and a graduated cylinder to find out the density of an object by filling the graduated cylinder to an easily calculated point (250) then dropping your object in the water making sure none splashes out then measure the difference, then weigh it and divide the mass by volume to get density.
