Volume of a regular solid can be calculated by immersing it fully in a measuring beaker containing water. The volume of the solid will be equal to the volume of the water displaced(volume of water after immersing the solid -(minus) volume of the water before immersing the solid in water).

What tool do we use to measure volume of a solid?

If the object is a regular geometric shape, you use the volume formula. If the object has an irregular shape, use the water displacement process.


When do you need to find volume by displacement instead of by formula?

You need to find volume by displacement instead of by formula when the object is not a regular solid. It could be an object like a pen where the height, weight, and length can't be easily measured, or a liquid.


How would you use displacement to find the volume of a solid?

if the object is solid, or you are willing to include the error of the wall thickness, then the displacement of an object IS its volume. if one was to submerge that object in a liquid, the change of volume that liquid would experience would be equivalent to the volume of the object being submerged.


How do you find the volume of a regular solid object?

You look at the front of the material and you measure it and that is how you get the volume of a solid object.ChEeKz!.!.!.


How to find mass and volume?

You determine the mass of an object using a balance. For liquid volume, you would use a graduated cylinder. To find the volume of a regular solid, use the appropriate geometric formula. If the solid is irregular, use the water displacement method for finding volume.


How do you get the volume of any shape regular or irregular?

if it is a solid, use the water displacement method.


What is the process used to find the volume of an irregular solid object?

It is called displacement, and is done by submerging the object in a fluid and measuring the volume of fluid that the object displaced.


Finding the volume of a solid when would water displacement be helpful?

When you are trying to find the volume of an irregularly shaped object.


How does the word displacement apply to indirect measurement of volume?

Volume is difficult to calculate mathematically in a complex shape. Immersing an object in a liquid pushes out a volume of that liquid equal to the volume of the object. The result is called displacement because the solid displaces the liquid.


What do you use to measure the vlume of a solid?

The method for determining the volume of a solid depends on its shape. The volume of a solid object with a regular geometric shape (rectangular box, cube, cylinder, sphere) can be determined using the volume formula for the shape. Because many objects are not regularly shaped their volume cannot be determined using a volume formula. The volume of these objects can be found by water displacement. A volume of water sufficient to cover the object is placed in a graduated cylinder and the volume read. The object is added to the cylinder and the volume read again. The difference between the two volumes is the volume of the object.


How is displacement used to measure the volume of a solid object?

The first step would be to place a liquid in a container and record the volume. Now add the solid object (normally irregularly shaped). Ensuring that the object is completely submerged, record the new volume. Now simply subtract the first volume from the second to determine the volume of the object. The volume of the object will be equal to the volume of water displaced



How do you solve for volume of a solid object?

you multiply the length times width times height and you should get the volume. If the solid is of uneven shape, immerse it in the known volume of water and note the increase in volume of water due to inclusion of solid. This extra volume of water created by displacement is the volume of that solid.


How do you measure the volume of a solid?

You can use the water displacement method to measure the volume of an irregularly shaped solid. For a regularly shaped object you can do length x width x height.


What instrument measures the volume of an irregular object?

If you submerge the object in a volumetrically-labeled beaker, the volume of water displaced (how much the water rises when the object is submerged), is the volume of the object.Either a graduated cylinder or overflow can is used to measure the volume of an irregular solid by water displacement.


How do you measure the volume of a solid object?

The volume of a solid object is measured using a mathematical equation appropriate to its geometry, provided it is of regularly geometrical form (polyhedral or circle-based). Alternatively, if it is irregular but small and can be immersed, by displacement of water.


What do you use to measure solids?

To measure the volume of a regular shaped solid object use l x w x h or water displacement. The mass can be found using a Triple Beam Balance.


The displacement method for measuring volume?

The displacement method is a method for measuring the volume of a solid. The solid is immersed in liquid and the level of the liquid before it is immersed is subtracted from the level of the liquid after it is immersed to get the volume of the solid.


How do you obtain the volume of an irregular solid soluble in water?

I notice that most of the answers ignored the fact that you are working with a solid that is soluble in water. Measuring the displacement in water will be incorrect as some of the volume will dissolve. First make a saturated solution from the solid in water. Then place the object in this saturated solution. Measure the displacement.


What is the best way to measure the volume of an irregular shaped solid?

The displacement method is best. If the object can be submersed in water, then do so in a graduated container. Measure the change in volume and you will have your answer.




Could the water displacement method be used to determine the volume of a regular solid as well as an irregular solid?

Yep, it can! Try it with a cube, its easy. The only problem is that it might not work as well as just finding the volume


Used to measure the volume of an irregular object?

You measure the volume of an irregular object by water displacement. 1)Use a cylinder that is wide enough to take the solid object and fill it with water to an amount that will completely cover the object, but don't put the object in yet. 2) Measure and record the volume of the water. 3)Carefully place the object into the cylinder with the water. Measure and record the new volume in the cylinder. 4)Subtract the volume in Step 2 from the volume in Step 3, and the result is the volume of the irregular solid.


Water is water displacement method?

The water displacement method is a way to determine the volume of an irregular solid. You place enough water in a graduated cylinder so that the object will be covered by the water when you place it into the cylinder. Determine the volume of water and record it. Then place the solid into the graduated cylinder. Determine the new volume and record it. Subtract the first volume from the second volume and that will give you the volume of the solid in mL. Since 1mL = 1cm3, you can convert the volume of the solid in mL directly to cm3. So, if the volume of the solid is determined to be 15mL, you can convert it directly to 15cm3.
